Trade Union Facility Time

Facility time is the provision of paid or unpaid time off from an employee’s normal role to undertake trade union duties and activities as a trade union representative. There is a statutory entitlement to reasonable paid time off for undertaking union duties.

Under the Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements) Regulations 2017 public sector employers must collate and publish, on an annual basis, a range of data on the amount and cost of facility time within their organisation.
