    Benteler Automotive UK v ISTC TUR 1/4/00 CAC (0 other reports)

A union-proposed "bargaining unit" consisting of weekly-paid production operatives and material handlers was based on the reality of the employer's existing management organisation and practice, and was compatible with effective management for the purposes of the new trade union recognition provisions, decides the Central Arbitration Committee in Benteler Automotive UK v ISTC 17.10.00 Case: TUR 1/4/00. There were a number of contractual, operational and organisational differences that reflected the particular characteristics and interests of the workers concerned, and that distinguished them from monthly-paid supervisory, technical and administrative staff.
