Trade union facility time and pay policy

Trade union facility time

The Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements) Regulations 2017 took effect from 1 April 2017. These regulations were laid following the enactment of the Trade Union Act 2016. The Trade Union Act was passed in May 2016; one of the elements of this Act is the requirement for employers in the public sector to publish information on facility time.

'Trade Union Facility Time' can be defined as the time off from an individual’s job, granted by the employer, to enable a union representative to carry out their trade union role.
