The article discusses a court case where UK Coal Mining Ltd. had decided to close one of its mines without consulting the employees' trade unions, which left more than a hundred redundant. The employment tribunal found that the company had failed to comply with the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 (TULRCA) because there had been little or no consultation about the redundancies. It therefore made the maximum award of 90 days' pay for each dismissed employee.
