British Airways plc v Unite the Union [2010] WLR (D) 131

“When, following a ballot the result of which supported strike action, one was asking whether a union and its members were protected from a claim in tort under certain provisions within Part V of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, the conditions contained in s 231 of the Act as to the provision by the union of information to its members concerning the results of the ballot were critical. However, s 231 was poorly drafted and it was not appropriate to adopt an over-literal interpretation of its wording.”
