Industrial Action and Injunctions - Recent Case Law
Hardly a week goes by without strike action from one group or another.
Strike action by rail workers, cabin crew, baggage handlers, nurses, teachers and, barristers have all been widely reported in the news recently. With further strike action seeming increasingly likely, it is more important than ever that you are familiar with recent case law in this area, regardless of whichever side you represent or are.
During this session, lecturer and commercial barrister Rachel Coyle of 36 Civil (The 36 Group) will detail what you need to know if a strike or other industrial action is called by a trade union. Rachel will discuss the common grounds for an injunction and what effect an interim injunction will have. Viewers will also receive guidance on how to go about applying for an injunction and what will happen once an interim injunction is granted.
In addition, consideration will be given to the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act (TULRCA) 1992, which defines and governs the roles of trade unions, including in relation to collective bargaining and industrial action, and its relevance. Issues surrounding injunctions against employees will also be considered.
