Goldwater and others v Sellafield Ltd

Employment – Terms and conditions of employment. A rule was introduced into the employees' contract of employment that they would receive the pay and conditions of a new post when they moved to it but, in any case, no later than six weeks after being informed of the selection. The claimants contended that the words 'pay and conditions of the new post' included certain supplements which went with the new post. Contrary to the finding of the employment tribunal, the Employment Appeal Tribunal determined, inter alia, that the proper construction of the rule was that it did include those supplements.
