Trade union membership rules are amended

Implementation date: 6 April 2009

Section 19 of the Employment Act 2008 allows a trade union to expel or exclude an individual on the basis of his or her membership or former membership of a political party. The changes to the rules on trade union membership arise from a ruling of the European Court of Human Rights that a trade union could expel a member of the British National Party. The Act and the Order bringing the Act into force can be viewed on the OPSI website.
