Rachel Crasnow QC and Rachel Barrett win in Court of Appeal key case about trade union rights of foster carers

Rachel Crasnow QC and Rachel Barrett win in Court of Appeal key case about trade union rights of foster carers.

In The National Union of Professional Foster Carers (NUPFC) v Certification Officer,  an appeal has succeeded regarding the breach of human rights (Article 11) in relation to the right to be entered on the list of trade unions under s 2 of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992.

After several years of working for this trade union on this cutting edge case, the Court of Appeal judgment is a significant breakthrough.
