Article summary

Employment analysis: An application by a worker to the Central Arbitration Committee for derecognition of a non-independent union is admissible if at least 10% of the workers in the bargaining unit favour the end of the current bargaining arrangements and a majority of the workers in the bargaining unit would be likely to favour the end of those arrangements. In the first application for such derecognition to come before the CAC it has held that relevant factors to answer the second part of that question include the respective levels of membership of the non-independent union and an independent union which wants to be recognised, the very limited scope and reach of the current bargaining arrangements and the vocal and influential support of activists and social media commentators. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
