The conciliation service’s 2010/11 annual report shows it dealt with 1,054 collective disputes over the period, up 15% from 2009/10. Pay continued to be the top issue followed by redundancy. Acas dealt with almost 18,000 disputes between individuals and their employers in 2010/11 through their pre-claim conciliation (PCC) service, an increase of 80% on the previous year. The proportion of cases where no claim was then made to an employment tribunal was 74%, meaning that 13,158 cases were prevented.
