Trade Union Facility Time Data

The Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements) Regulations 2017 came into force on 1st April 2017. As part of the Trade Union Act 2016, these regulations place a legislative requirement on relevant public sector employers, including universities, 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 UK government, we will publish this data annually.
