Read the initial assessment issued by the UK NCP concluding the specific instance 

In October 2006, the UK NCP received a request for review from a trade union alleging that a UK-based multinational enterprise had breached the employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines by its plans to restructure one of its UK plants.

The NCP facilitated an exchange of information between the complainant and the enterprise. This opened up discussions between the parties and the NCP suspended its consideration of the specific instance while these discussions were ongoing. The parties came to an agreement and the NCP therefore concluded the specific instance. The initial assessment records the events but does not include any finding by the NCP on whether the complaint merited further examination.
