A five-month interruption in industrial action, during which time the nature of the dispute shifted away from protection for all employees of London Underground Ltd to protection for those to be transferred to, and subsequently employed by, a possible future employer, amounted to a cessation rather than a suspension of industrial action, and was also sufficient to defeat the argument that a call for further strike action had been made "in contemplation or furtherance of a trade dispute" between the workers and their employer, holds the High Court in London Underground Ltd v National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers.
