It is possible for an employer to gain an injunction to prevent
industrial action if that action would be unlawful, for example if the union has
not complied with the statutory requirements on balloting and notification.
The Employment Relations Act 1999 removed the obligation on unions
to identify members being balloted by name and required "accidental" failures to
comply with the requirements to be disregarded. The scope for obtaining
injunctive relief is therefore severely restricted.
