Explanatory Memorandum to Employment Relations (Northern Ireland) Order 2004

Inducement of members not accorded entitlement to vote

Article 7amends Article 115B of the 1995 Order and inserts a new provision into Article 29 of that Order. The main effect is that where a union accidentally fails to ballot an insignificant number of those it intends to induce to take part in industrial action, it will not lose its protections against legal action because it induces them to take part in the action. Article 7(2) inserts a new paragraph into Article 29 of the 1995 Order. The effect of the new paragraph is to include Article 115A in the list of requirements, contravention of which gives union members the right to take legal action.
