Trade Union Disclosure for the period to 31 March 2023

The Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements) Regulations 2017 came into force on 1 April 2017. The regulations place a legislative requirement on relevant public sector employers to collate and publish, on an annual basis, a range of data on the amount and cost of facility time within their organisation.

In summary, the total number of employees who were relevant union officials in the period to 31 March 2023 was one. The employees spent 1-50% of their working hours on facility time, which equated to a cost of 0.02% of the total wage bill of £5.1m. 100% of the time spent on trade union activities was paid time.

In the period to 31 March 2022 the total number of employees who were relevant union officials was one. The employee spent 0% of their working hours on facility time, which equated to a cost of nil or 0% of the total wage bill of £4.3m. 100% of time spent on trade union activities was paid time.
