Industrial action: Majority vote for strike was sufficient
This report relates to 1 case(s)
West Midlands Travel Ltd v Transport and General Workers' Union  IRLR 578 CA (0 other reports)
In an industrial action ballot which includes questions on both strike action and action short of a strike, each question has to be treated separately, so that a majority vote in favour of a strike will support subsequent strike action, even if those votes do not add up to a majority of those voting in the ballot as a whole, holds the Court of Appeal in West Midlands Travel Ltd v Transport and General Workers' Union.
In May 1992, bus drivers employed by West Midlands Travel Ltd went on strike on two Saturdays.
