    Ackinclose and others v Gateshead Metropolitan Borough Council [2005] IRLR 79 EAT (0 other reports)

Key points

In Ackinclose and others v Gateshead Metropolitan Borough Council, the EAT holds:

  • The tribunal was correct to find that local authority employees, contracted out to the private sector, were not entitled to pay increases under new arrangements introduced by a new collective bargaining agreement, known as the Green Book. Their transferred contracts of employment made reference only to the Green Book's predecessor, the White Book.
