Oak Lodge School, Barnet: Trade Union Facilities Time

Trade Union Facilities Time

Oak Lodge School purchases Trade Union Facilities Time as a traded service supplied by Barnet Education and Skills service at a cost of £380 for the year. This service provides a cost-effective access route for statutory and collective consultation and bargaining through branch officials from the National Union of Teachers, NASUWT, Unison and GMB unions. The arrangement provides access to a framework for academies to manage industrial relations and largely eliminates or at least reduces the need to establish, agree and coordinate release arrangements and paid time off for duties and training

Additionally in 2017-18, a small amount of time was provided to one union representative to attend training off site and to run twilight meetings in school for employees. Whilst not undertaking formal facilities time arrangements, another employee acting as a school-based representative for another union estimates their time commitment to approximately 20 minutes per week averaged over the year. Neither representative has therefore spent in excess of 1% of paid hours on trade union related activity.

Trustees have made reference to Statutory Instrument 2017 No. 328, The Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements) Regulations 2017 to calculate the details outlined below for the Academy Year 2017-18.
