Key points

In R (on the application of the National Union of Journalists) v Central Arbitration Committee and MGN Ltd, the High Court holds:

  • The correct interpretation of para. 35(1) of Schedule A1 of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 (TULR(C)A) is that the CAC has no power to deal with an application by a union for recognition if another union has already been voluntarily recognised first by the employer.
