We recognise the importance of informing and consulting our staff and their representatives, and value a good working relationship with trade unions.
3 trade unions represent our staff:
|Trade union facilities||Total|
|Staff who are union representatives, including general, learning and health and safety||3|
|Full-time equivalent staff who are union representatives, including general, learning and health and safety||1.07|
|Staff who devote at least 50% of their time to union duties||2|
|Full-time equivalent staff who devote 100% of their time to union duties||1|
|Basic estimate of spending on unions*||£45,620|
|Basic estimate of spending on unions as a percentage of the total pay bill*||0.68%|
*Spending estimates in the table above are based on the number of full-time equivalent days spent on union duties multiplied by the average salary of all staff in April 2020.
