The clear legislative purpose of the amended provisions on the information to be given by trade unions in the requisite notices of ballots and subsequent industrial action is to enable an employer to know which part or parts of its workforce are being invited to take industrial action, in order that the employer can (first) try to dissuade them and (secondly, and so far as unsuccessful in its first aim) make plans to avoid or minimise disruption and continue to communicate with the relevant part of parts of the workforce, holds the Court of Appeal in National Union of Rail, Maritime & Transport Workers v London Underground Ltd and others.
