USDAW & Wilson v Woolworths & Ors (Case C-182/13)
Preliminary opinion on whether the phrase in the EU Collective Redundancies Directive 98/59 ‘at least 20’ dismissals referred to dismissals over the employer’s establishments, or the number in each establishment.
The AG noted that the directive 'does not require, nor does it preclude, aggregating the number of dismissals in all the employer's establishments'. The full ECJ will be ruling on the questions of aggregation and the meaning of 'establishment' later in the year.
