    In RMT v Serco Ltd t/a Serco Docklands; ASLEF v London & Birmingham Railway Ltd t/a London Midland [2011] EWCA Civ 226 CA, the Court of Appeal ruled in relation to strike ballots that the respective unions had done enough to call lawful strike action and that the High Court had been wrong to grant injunctions preventing the action from going ahead.
