The Trade Union Subscription Deductions (Northern Ireland) Order 1999


This is the original version (as it was originally made).

Transitional arrangements

4.—(1) The substitution made by Article 3 does not affect the continued operation of Article 35 of the 1995 Order (in its original form) in relation to an authorisation permitting the deduction of trade union subscriptions given before this Order comes into operation to an employer by a worker for the purposes of Article 35 of the 1995 Order.

  • Such an authorisation is referred to in this Article as “a preserved authorisation”.

(2) While a preserved authorisation is in force, the worker may be given (whether by the employer or by a person acting on his behalf) a notice in the form set out in the Schedule that the employer proposes to treat the preserved authorisation as an authorisation given under Article 35 of the 1995 Order as substituted by Article 3 (and so treat it as being of unlimited duration until withdrawn and as not requiring advance notice of any increase in the amount to be deducted).

(3) If no written notice to the contrary is received by the employer from the worker within the period of 14 days beginning with the day on which the worker received the notice mentioned in paragraph (2), the preserved authorisation shall be treated as if it were an authorisation given under Article 35 of the 1995 Order as substituted by Article 3.

(4) Expressions used in this Article and in Article 35 of the 1995 Order as substituted by Article 3 have the same meanings in this Article as they have in that Article.
