Hudoc No violation of Art. 11; No violation of Art. 14+11
The Belgian Government failed to consult a municipal police union about legislation affecting public sector employment rights. The union’s direct claim under article 11 failed, but article 14 was engaged (though on the particular facts the article 14 claim also failed). Article 14 comes into play whenever ‘the subject-matter of the disadvantage . . constitutes one of the modalities of the exercise of a right guaranteed’
