The High Court has turned down an application by British Airways for an injunction to prevent industrial action by the British Air Lines Pilots Association (BALPA). The case was heard on 23 July by Mrs Justice Elisabeth Laing and concerned the statutory construction of various sections of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 and the requirements placed on unions to comply with ballot notices, in particular the interpretation of s.226A. Simon Cheetham QC and Jack Mitchell, instructed by David Hunt of Farrer & Co, represented BALPA, having stepped in for Michael Ford QC and Stuart Brittenden, who had previously been acting for BALPA, but were unavailable for this hearing. Permission to Appeal to the Court of Appeal has been granted and that appeal is likely to be heard early next week.
