Interference with voting in strike action ballot - Royal Mail Group Ltd v Communication Workers Union [CA] 04.12.19 (Unreported)
Interference with voting for the purposes of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 s.230(1) was not limited to conduct which amounted to intimidation, coercion or fraud. Parliament had intended that union members should receive their ballot paper at home, and the conduct of the Communication Workers Union in encouraging Royal Mail employees to intercept ballot papers at their workplace and to vote there immediately had the effect of subverting that legislative intention and amounted to interference.https://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWCA/Civ/2019/2150.html
