Local Authority Arbitration pre tribunal

The request was partially successful.

Dear Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service,

Please furnish me with the following data:

Number of arbitrations prior to Employment Tribunal between 1/1/2006 and 31/12/2009 broken down by year, for employee disputes where the employee has been dismissed and relating to the following local authorities:

Nottingham City Council
Derby City Council
Leicester City Council
Lincoln City Council
Northampton Borough Council
Rutland County Council
Stoke on Trent City Council
Birmingham City Council
Coventry City Council
Worcester City Council

If possible, please break these into groups where the arbitration resulted in a positive result, e.g. the matter was resolved out of court, and a negative result, e.g. where arbitration failed.

Yours faithfully,

Ms D Smith

Dear Neil EDWARDS,

Answers from the Local Authorities in question suggest ACAS involvement between the dates I have requested.

I find your nul answer rather strange.

Please can you check your data.

Yours sincerely,

Ms D Smith

Dear Ms Smith

The original response remains the same in relation to 'arbitrations'. Please can you clarify if you mean 'conciliations'.

Yours sincerely,

Neil
