The CASE form is one of the most important documents in UNISON. The form must be completed by (or for) members if they require assistance from the union in dealing with a work place problem. It should be completed as fully as possible, signed and returned to the local UNISON branch.
The form is available to download in PDF and Word format.
You should know that it is mandatory from 6 May 2014 to notify ACAS of a dispute and trigger early conciliation.
This procedure will be undertaken by organisers once the union’s solicitors assess that a legal case has reasonable prospects of success.
Triggering the early conciliation procedure changes the deadline within which to lodge claims.
Please remember therefore to refer legal cases to your organisers as soon as possible, and in good time before the three months (less one day) deadline.
