Declaration of recognition
14. The Panel is satisfied in accordance with paragraph 22(1)(b) of the Schedule that the majority of the workers constituting the bargaining unit are members of the Union. The Panel is satisfied that none of the conditions in paragraph 22(4) of the Schedule are met. Pursuant to paragraph 22(2) of the Schedule, the CAC must issue a declaration that the Union is recognised as entitled to conduct collective bargaining on behalf of the workers constituting the bargaining unit. The CAC accordingly declares that the Union is recognised by the Employer as entitled to conduct collective bargaining on behalf of the bargaining unit comprising “All Terminal Operatives (excluding stores officials, engineering technical shift employees, operational supervisors, shift superintendents, technical team leaders & agency staff)” located at London Gateway, The Manor Way, Stanford le Hope, Essex SS17 9PD. 

10. A membership check carried out by the Case Manager for the purposes of the Panel’s decision on acceptance, the result of which was reported to the Panel and the parties on 14 March 2016, showed that 144 of the 205 workers in the bargaining unit were members of the Union, a membership level of 70.24%. In the absence of any evidence to the contrary, the Panel is satisfied that the majority of the workers in the bargaining unit are members of the Union.
