I am writing to obtain information about the total amount of money paid to trade unions by your organisation and the amount of staff time spent on trade union activities

To outline my query as clearly as possible, I am requesting:

  2. For each trade union for which it applies, please provide the number of Full Time Equivalent (FTE) staff working for the union (this is sometimes called ‘Trade Union facility time’) in a) 2009-10 and b) 2010-11


Response

  1. In respect of the first element of your request: IPSA has not paid any money to trade unions in either of the financial periods stated.
