Cost of Facility Time 

Employment  legislation  requires  an  employer  to  permit  an  employee  who  is  an official  of  an  independent  recognised  trade  union  to  take  reasonable  paid  time  off  to carry  out  industrial  relations  duties  and  to  undergo  training.  This is known as Facility Time. 

New legislation requires organisations to publish: the number of employees who were relevant union officials from 1 April 2018 - 31 March 2019; the proportion of their working hours spent on union activity; and the percentage of the pay bill spent on facility time. In 2018/19 there we no employees of the Trust who were also union representatives.  Consequently, there is no data to publish for this year.
