Trade union facility time

The Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements) Regulations 2017 came into force on 1st April 2017. These regulations place a legislative requirement on relevant public sector employers, including London borough council’s, to collate and publish data on paid facility time for employees who are relevant trade union officials.

In line with the publication guidelines set out by the government, we will publish this data annually. View the most recent reporting period data:-
