What do we already know?
We updated you in our February Newsletter Case update (2): Collective consultation – a brighter future? that Advocate General Wahl had decided in the Woolworths case (USDAW and another v WW Realisation 1 Ltd (in liquidation) and others) that the duty to collectively consult on 20+ planned redundancies (or changes to terms & conditions) was not triggered when the 20+ roles are spread across more than one of an employer’s sites. The decision is available here.
The ECJ will deliver its decision in the above case on 30 April 2015.
