Remedy for failure to comply with Article 63(3)(a)

64.—(1) Any person who claims that a trade union has failed to comply with Article 63(3)(a) may apply to the High Court for a declaration to that effect if he is a member of the union at the time when the application is made.

(2) Where, on an application under this Article, the High Court is satisfied that a trade union has failed to comply with Article 63(3)(a) it may, if it considers it appropriate to do so in order to secure that the collection of contributions to the political fund is discontinued, make an order requiring the union to take, within such time as may be specified in the order, such steps as may be so specified.

(3) Where an order has been made under this Article, any person who satisfies the requirements of paragraph (4) shall be entitled to enforce obedience to the order as if he had made the application in pursuance of which the order was made.

(4) The requirements are that—

(a)he is a member of the union at the time when proceedings to enforce obedience to the order are begun; and

(b)he was such a member at the time when the order was made.

(5) The remedy of any person for a failure of a trade union to comply with Article 63(3)(a) shall be by way of application under this Article and not otherwise; but nothing in this paragraph shall be taken to prejudice the right of any person to recover any sum payable to him by the union under Article 63(4).
