United Kingdom - Union challenges government in courts over redundancy scheme - April 29, 2010

The PCS civil service union has earlier been taking industrial action over government changes to the civil service compensation scheme which governs payments for redundancy and early retirement based on years of service. However, it is also pursuing a case in the High Court, arguing that the government had no right to make unilateral changes to the scheme as any amendments had to be negotiated and agreed with the union (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 2 December 2009 and Year 3 February 2010).
