Speciality Care plc v Pachela and another [1996] IRLR 248 EAT

Reports relating to this case:

  • Trade union membership: Guidance on meaning of trade union membership

    Date:
    1 August 1996

    In Speciality Care plc v Pachela and another, the EAT holds that it remains correct that a complaint of unfair dismissal by reason of trade union membership should be determined not only by reference to whether the complainant had simply joined a union, but also by reference to whether the introduction of union representation into the employment relationship had led the employer to dismiss him or her.
