Unlawful ban of trade union rights for park police

Wandsworth London Borough Council v Vining & Ors [2017] EWCA Civ 1092

Court:

The appeal concerned the rights of members of local authority parks police forces and of their trade unions. The Court held that there was no engagement of the ECHR, art 8 or art 14 read in conjunction with art 8 in relation to the dismissal claims. The exclusion from the protections of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 was a breach of the ECHR, art 11 and this appeal was allowed.

Mathew Purchase was involved in this case.
