Trade Union Facilities Time

Facilities Time Reporting

Facility time is the provision of paid or unpaid time off from an employee's normal role to undertake trade union duties and activities as a trade union representative. Under the Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements) Regulations 2017, the Trust as a relevant public sector employer is now required to collect and publish, on an annual basis, a range of data in relation to their employees who are trade union representatives.

In 2022-23 the Trust had 4 employees who were trade union representatives who spent less than 50% of their time on trade union activities. The total cost of facility time was £4,350 (0.03% of the Trust's total pay bill).
