Trade unions: CAC has jurisdiction to order re-run of ballot
This report relates to 1 case(s)
R (on the application of Ultraframe (UK) Ltd) v Central Arbitration Committee  IRLR 641 CA (0 other reports)
In R (on the application of Ultraframe (UK) Ltd) v Central Arbitration Committee  EWCA Civ 560, the Court of Appeal holds that:
- The role of the Central Arbitration Committee (CAC) had been summarised in R v CAC ex parte Kwik Fit (GB) Ltd  IRLR 395, approved in this case, as having been intended by parliament to be a decision-making body in a specialist area not suitable for the intervention of the courts.
- The CAC therefore had jurisdiction under the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 (TULRCA) to order a further ballot to be carried out to determine whether the union in question was supported by a majority of the workforce to represent them in collective bargaining.
