secondary action
Under Section 20 of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, trade union immunity does not apply in the event of secondary action; i.e. action other than against the employer in question. However under Section 220 of the Act, picketing is allowed and does not prejudice immunity if it is lawful. It is lawful, in contemplation or furtherance of an industrial dispute, for a person to attend at or near his place of work or, if a union official, at or near a member's place of work, peacefully to obtain or communicate information or to use peaceful persuasion.
