The venue for the UNISON Certification Officer hearing 19-21 December

The following information is taken from the website of the Certification Officer.

It relates to the hearing scheduled for: 19,20 and 21 December 2016 of a number of complaints (including from myself) against UNISON.

The complaints concern the Union’s election for its General Secretary in 2015. The applicants allege that, during the election period, the Union breached a number of its rules and a paragraph of the General Secretary 2015 Election Procedures as well as section 49 of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992. This is the full hearing of the complaints following the preliminary hearing held on 6 October 2016.

The venue is:
Fleetbank House

(This is the office of the Employment Appeal Tribunal which seems sensible as the parties will know where to go for any appeal!).

The Certification Officer site states that; “hearings are held in public (unless otherwise stated) and will commence at 10:00 am. Anyone wishing to attend a hearing should telephone or email the Certification Office (020 7210 3734 / info@certoffice.org) so that we may arrange for a security access pass to be produced.”

Hi Jon. I notice that the complaint I made against my branch - West Cheshire - which was deemed valid by the returning officer - is not among the 20 specific complaints that you list in your case. I am happy to provide details if that is in any way helpful.
