    Timeplan Education Group Ltd v National Union of Teachers and another [1997] IRLR 457 CA (0 other reports)

A domestic teaching union did not have the requisite knowledge or intention to have wrongfully interfered with a teacher-supply agency's rights under its contract with an overseas teaching union to publish its advertisements, holds the Court of Appeal in Timeplan Education Group Ltd v National Union of Teachers and another [1997] IRLR 457. The domestic union did not know of any continuing contract between the overseas union and the agency for the publication of the agency's advertisements when it suggested that the overseas union might consider it inappropriate to carry the agency's advertisements in the future.
