Three complaints under section 4(1)(b) of the Trade Union (Amalgamations, etc) Act 1964 were made about the amalgamation of the Union and the Association of Broadcasting and Allied Staffs. The first that the Union failed to make available three statements arranged by the General Council in the time allowed; the second that financial statement prepared by the Union failed to satify the requirements of the General Council; the third that the inclusion of the statement strongly supporting amalgamation made on behalf of the joint committee breached the Act. The Certification Officer made an order to re-run the ballot in relation to complaint 1 and dismissed complaints 2 and 3.
