    14 October 2005

    In Yewdall v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, the EAT holds that the employment tribunal had been correct to dismiss the employee's claim that he had been subjected to a detriment for engaging in trade union activities under s.146 Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 ("TULR(C)A"), as he had not been taking part in trade union activities at the relevant time.
