The Mirror published an article on 18 June 2013 written by Mark Ellis reporting that "Unison applies for judicial review to stop ?brutal? charges for employment tribunal cases".

The article says that "A legal challenge against charges of up to œ1000 to take cases to employment tribunals has been launched by Britain’s biggest public sector union Unison. The controversial fees for workers fighting unfair dismissal and discrimination cases are due to be introduced by the Tory-led Coalition next month."

It goes on to explain "But Unison has applied to the High Court in London for a judicial review to stop the "brutal" charges being introduced. Union leaders fear thousands of badly-treated workers with genuine grievances will be deterred from seeking justice because of the fees."
