The Certification Officer declared that the union had breached section 46(1)(b) of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992. Mr R Lyons, a Joint General Secretary, had continued in post for more than five years without having been re-elected at an election which satisfied the requirements of the 1992 Act.
