terms of negotiation: collective or individual and what issues the agreement covers (e.g. pay and conditions)

Identifying key stakeholders

Recording facilities time
The Trade Union Act 2016 (TUA16) and Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements) Regulations 2017
The legal entitlement to trade union facility time has NOT changed
It is only the reporting requirements that have changed
The duty to report lies solely with the employer
RCN representatives should engage, in partnership, with employers to ensure that the reporting is accurate – this includes identifying and accounting for personal time spent on trade union duties
What is to be reported? As required by the regulation
The time that is permitted by the employer to:
Carry out trade union duties, the duties of a learning representative or activities in which an employee is acting as a representative of the Union
Accompanying a worker to a disciplinary or grievance hearing
Carrying out duties and/or receiving training as a safety representative
Representing members collectively in negotiations with the employer
The RCN does not believe it is necessary to collect data or report on more than is required by the Regulations

The reporting process should be:
– not involve excessive use of employer or trade union resources. There is no requirement to break the information down into different types of duties.
– the same approach to reporting should be used. Only data required by the Regulations should be collected.
– identification of trade union reps (or their salary) is not required in the format employers have been asked to use
