Facility Time Taken by Trade Union Officials 

The Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements) Regulations 2017 requires us to publish information in relation to facility time taken by trade union officials. As part of these new regulations, facility time covers duties carried out for the trade union (for example, accompanying an employee to disciplinary or grievance hearing). It also covers training received and duties carried out under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974

Bishop Perowne is required to publish various information in relation to "relevant union officials" and "facility time".

A relevant union official means a trade union official; a learning representative of a trade union within the meaning of the 1992 Act; or a safety representative appointed under regulations made under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

Facility time means time off taken by a relevant union official, that is permitted by the institution, in order to:

  • carry out trade union duties, the duties of a union learning representative or activities in relation to which an employee is acting as a representative of the union;
  • accompany a worker to a disciplinary or grievance hearing; or
  • carry out duties and receive training under the Safety Representatives and Safety Committees Regulations 1977.

The information that we need to be published is as follows:
