Trade Union Facility Time


Facility time is paid time off during working hours for trade union representatives to carry out trade union duties.

All public-sector organisations that employ more than 49 full-time employees are required to submit data to the government relating to the use of facility time in their organisation. The reporting period is 1 April to 31 March with submissions due by 31 July.

This is required under the Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements) Regulations 2017.

See the Government's reporting portal where you can view and download the data.
