Judicial review granted: de facto employer and contracted out staff

By August 9, 2018Uncategorized

The Independent Workers Union of Great Britain (IWGB) has been granted a judicial review before the High Court.  The review is in light of the Central Arbitration Committee (CAC) denying IWGB a hearing for an application for trade union recognition with the University of London.

This case centres around contracted out staff joining together to request collective bargaining powers with their de facto employer.  In this instance a mix of outsourced workers including cleaners and post-room are seeking to improve their rights.  Currently union recognition is only afforded to unions representing direct employees of businesses.
