CCG Statement regarding Trade Union Facility Time
NHS Cheshire CCG is wholly supportive of partnership working and as such contributes to the Staff Partnership Forum facilitated by NHS Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit. The CCG utilises this forum as a vehicle and mechanism to support proactive staff engagement, consultation and, where appropriate, negotiation.
The CCG does not employ anyone who undertakes relevant union official duties as outlined in the Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements) Regulations 2017 and therefore no time is released from this employer in relation to official duties. The CCG liaises and works with CSU Trade Union representatives and area/regional representatives from those recognised unions whose time will be recorded with their employing authority.
