Oy Liikenne Ab v Pekka Liskojärvi and Pentti Juntunen (2001) C-172/99 is an EU labour law and UK labour law case, concerning the effects of a business transfer on an employee's rights at work.

Contents

Facts

Seven local Helsinki bus routes were run by Hakunlian Liikenne. They lost the contract from the Greater Helsinki Joint Board for transport. 45 drivers were dismissed and 33 of them rehired by Liikenne Ab. The contract award procedure was conducted under the Public Service Contracts Directive 92/50/EC, for competitive tendering in public services.

Judgment

The ECJ held that ‘bus transport cannot be regarded as an activity based essentially on manpower, as it requires substantial plant and equipment’.[1] Labour intensivity will matter, but also it is just one of the seven factors of production outlined by the decision in Süzen v Zehnacker Gebäudereingung GmbH[2] that should be taken into account.
