The first ten years of the third statutory union recognition procedure in Britain.
6 June 2010 represented the tenth anniversary of the introduction of the third statutory union recognition procedure in Britain. In order to assess its outcomes and impact, the determinations of the bodies which administer the procedure, namely, the Central Arbitration Committee (CAC) covering Great Britain, and for Northern Ireland, the Industrial Court (IC), are used to form an aggregate picture of the outcomes of the applications. These individual applications are publicly available on their websites. Using this picture provides a basis for assessing the impact of the procedure and the applications upon the voluntary arena of employment relations.
