Trade union Redundancy. The Employment Appeal Tribunal (Scotland) held, in allowing the local authority's appeal against the decision of the employment tribunal (Scotland) that it had been under a duty to consult collectively with teachers facing redundancies as it had qualified as the relevant establishment for the purposes of of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, that the tribunal judge had, inter alia, taken an incorrect approach to the determination of what an 'establishment' was for the purposes of s 188 of the Act and had erred in her fact finding. Accordingly, the case would be remitted to the same tribunal judge for reconsideration.
