Workers in a particular section of a distribution centre were an appropriate bargaining unit under the 1992 Act


Re: R (LIDL Ltd) v Central Arbitration Committee [2016] EWHC 2040 (Admin)

The claimant brought judicial review proceedings against a decision of the Central Arbitration Committee. The CAC had decided that warehouses operatives in a particular section at one of the claimant’s distribution centres was an appropriate bargaining unit for the purposes of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, Sch A1. Held: The CAC had not misconstrued the relevant provisions in Sch A1, it had given adequate and intelligible reasons for its decision and it did not fail to have regard to a material consideration on the facts.

Aileen McColgan was involved in this case.
