Dismissal of trade union representative for retention of unlawfully obtained information - Morris v Metrolink Ratp Dev Ltd [CA] 14.06.18 (Unreported)
The dismissal of a trade union representative for the retention of unlawfully obtained information had been unfair under the Employment Rights Act 1996 s.98 and automatically unfair under the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 s.152. The very limited way in which the employee had made use of leaked information concerning his union members was not a sufficient departure from good industrial relations practice so as to take his conduct outside the scope of "trade union activities" for the purposes of s.152.http://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWCA/Civ/2018/1358.html
