Collective redundancies: Obligation to consult arose at early stage

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Cranwick Country Food plc v GMB 7.9.05 UKEAT/0225/05/ZT, the EAT holds that the obligation to consult employee representatives or trade unions on redundancies under s.188 of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, arose when the first decision was made to consolidate production in one factory, and not when irrevocable steps had been taken to purchase a new site.
