HM Prison Service v Prison Officers' Association 27 March 1995 CAC

Reports relating to this case:

  • Disclosure of information: Employer's refusal to negotiate does not preclude disclosure

    1 June 1995

    Where there is a generally established custom and practice of collective bargaining over an issue, an employer cannot circumvent its statutory duty to disclose certain information to recognised trade unions simply by making a unilateral declaration that it will not negotiate or bargain on a particular occasion, declares the Central Arbitration Committee in HM Prison Service and the Prison Officers' Association.
