Industrial Relations in UK Law
Post Office v Crouch
But the Industrial Relations Act is of a very different character. It creates rights, as in section 5, but breaches of these rights are not torts—they are only unfair industrial practices.

Chappell v Times Newspapers Ltd
I would not, however, look for new categories in which to pigeonhole new exceptions to this rule as it works either for the employer or the employee, but I would make exceptions in accordance with the general principleon which discretionary remedies are granted, namely, where, and only where, an injunction is required by justice and equity in a particular case, and, at the interim stage, by the balance of convenience.
