I don't suppose even BALPA would have seen that one coming.
Without wishing to sound clever I knew they had to give a breakdown of “specialisation” having spent 15 minutes Googling TULR(C)A about a week before the planned action. I was, therefore, very surprised to see that this was the technicality they “got them on”. I know four fifths of F all about union/strike legalities but am moderately useful on Google....
