Industrial relations - Redundancy - Failure to consult trade union - Protective award against employer - Employment tribunal finding lack of consultation and making protective award - Correctness of decision - Trade Unions and Labour Relations Consolidation Act 1992, s 188.
Section188 of the Trade Unions and Labour Relations Consolidation Act 1992 did not require a consultation about the reasons for redundancy, including whether or not a plant should close. The requirement of an employer to consult a trade union related only to the consequences of an employer's decision to make plant closures, rather the decision to make the closures itself.
