The EAT has held, in the case of United States of America v S Nolan, that the USA had failed properly to consult representatives about the closure of one of its army bases in the UK.

As the USA had not consulted on the reasons for closing the base and had failed to start its consultation in good time, the tribunal had correctly ordered a 30-day protective award.
