Trade Union Facility Time Publication

The Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements) Regulations 2017 came into force on 1 April 2017. In order to comply with the regulations, public sector employers, including universities, are required to collate and publish data on paid facility time for employees who are relevant trade union officials. 

Below is the information from LSHTM’s returns, which are produced and published annually for a period running from 1 April to 31 March.

If you have queries about the Trade Union Facility Time Publication Requirements please contact Kessar Kalim, Director of HR.
