Trade union Recognition. The Administrative Court dismissed an application for judicial review by a United Kingdom registered company operating a fleet of business jets in Europe against a decision by a panel of the Central Arbitration Committee which found that there were no territorial restrictions relevant to a union's application for recognition in respect of all pilots employed by the company. The court found that the panel had applied the correct legal tests and had identified the most important factors leading to the conclusion that the connection of workers within the proposed bargaining unit, taken as a group, with Great Britain had been sufficiently strong for the union to be able to seek recognition for the purposes of conducting collective bargaining on their behalf.
