Explanatory Memorandum to Employment Relations (Northern Ireland) Order 2004

Entitlement to vote in ballot on industrial action

Article 6 clarifies that the members to whom the union must accord an entitlement to vote in an industrial action ballot are all the members it is reasonable for the union to believe will be induced by it to take part in the action. This puts beyond doubt that the union does not have to give such an entitlement to members who might take part in industrial action even though not induced to do so by the union.
