Consultation on facility time to begin next week

The source of this information being the Daily Telegraph no less!

The consultation is expected to propose no facility time for trade union activity and a 50% facility time cap for any one person. What the union’s plan is we don’t know. Apart from a few cryptic remarks at conference that we must prepare, no further information on the leadership’s thinking has been forthcoming – apart from that it opposes the cut in facility time.

Now there are good trade union arguments for nobody to be on a 100% facility time but that is for union movement to decide on, not a hostile government.
