The Court of Appeal has today handed down judgment in BALPA v Jet2.com Ltd addressing the scope of BALPA’s statutory right to negotiate with Jet2.com under A1 para 3(3) of the 1992 Act. The Court of Appeal accepted BALPA’s position that its right to negotiate was defined simply by reference to subject matter, i.e. whether any proposal ‘relates to’ pay, hours or holidays. It was not limited to proposals which, if agreed, would give rise to individually enforceable contractual rights. The appeal was brought on one of two issues which had been found in favour of Jet2.com at the High Court.
Old Square juniors featured on both sides – Stuart Brittenden for BALPA (led by Bruce Carr QC), and Ben Cooper for Jet2.com Ltd (led by John Bowers QC).
