West Midlands Travel Ltd v Transport and General Workers' Union [1994] IRLR 578 CA

Reports relating to this case:

  • Industrial action: Majority vote for strike was sufficient

    Date:
    1 August 1994

    In an industrial action ballot which includes questions on both strike action and action short of a strike, each question has to be treated separately, so that a majority vote in favour of a strike will support subsequent strike action, even if those votes do not add up to a majority of those voting in the ballot as a whole, holds the Court of Appeal in West Midlands Travel Ltd v Transport and General Workers' Union.
