    RJB Mining (UK) Ltd v National Union of Mineworkers [1995] IRLR 556 CA (0 other reports)

In RJB Mining (UK) Ltd v National Union of Mineworkers, the Court of Appeal confirms that a series of one-day strikes called for by the union would have commenced outside the statutory four-week period within which industrial action must initially be taken in order for a strike ballot to remain valid. Any action consequent on the union's strike notice would therefore have been unlawful.
