Employment tribunal decides attendance at union meetings is not "working time"

This report relates to 1 case(s)

Edwards v Encirc Ltd ET/2412489/2013

working time | trade union activities | rest periods

Two trade union representatives working night shifts claimed that the time they spent attending union meetings during the day was "working time" and so they were entitled to an 11-hour rest period from the end of the meetings until the start of their next night shift. The employment tribunal rejected this claim.
