Trade Union

The Trade Union Act 2016 introduced a requirement for public sector employers to publish certain information annually in respect of facility time. The “relevant period” is the 12 months from 1 April until 31 March each year. The first period therefore is from 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018.

The information is published on the College website, as well as a national on line portal maintained by HM Government. The information the College is required to publish is as follows:
