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.
