    Douglas v Graphical Paper and Media Union [1995] IRLR 426 HC (0 other reports)

A union had no implied power to set aside the result of an executive election ballot after the result had been declared, holds the High Court in Douglas v Graphical, Paper and Media Union. The only circumstances in which such a power might arise was where the whole election process was a nullity, for example because the candidate declared elected was not duly qualified.
