    In National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers v Midland Mainline Ltd, the Court of Appeal refuses to overturn an interim injunction preventing the RMT from inducing strike action, on the basis that the RMT was not likely to be able to establish immunity from civil action as it had not complied with the necessary statutory pre-conditions.
