The house of lords has ruled that St Helens MBC was justified in changing the terms and conditions of 72 residential care workers who transferred to the council, reports The Times (Law Report, p38).

Unison brought the case before the lords after a court of appeal decision found the council had acted within its powers.

The union had argued the decision was not for valid 'economic, technical or organisational' reasons allowable under TUPE rules.

The decision will also affect the Cornwall Care case.
