    No because the Hartley ruling has nothing to do with 195 days/1265 hours directed time rules in STPCD. They aren't changed.

    @jcstev would need advice on that from a union specialist who knew all the circumstances but I wouldn't get his hopes up.

    Court decisions are not generally retro-active so Hartley probably wouldn't be applied by the courts to something that happened before 2017.

    But in any case the usual remedy would be to bring an Employment Tribunal claim for unlawful deduction from wages. Tribunal claims must be brought within 3 months (less one day) of the event so unless the strike pay deduction was very recent jcstev would be out of time and unable to recover the deduction at Tribunal.

    MATs generally do not recognise unions in my experience and unions are a bit too non-confrontational for my liking and generally do not stand up for their members, in my experience. The advice is always to find another job.
