Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Transport for London,

Please provide data on how many days of trade union representative release have been allowed for representatives within the Directorate of Network Operations of London Underground Limited in the last 12 months, though if it is easier to do a calendar year then please provide 2017.

The request is for all representatives, both health and safety and industrial, permanently released and not, and for all stations, drivers and control roles. I know that the "SAP" back office system you use makes it very quick for an administrator to run this report on individual representatives, so please do not deflect with a "too much time" excuse.

Finally, please provide the number of representatives the data cover.

Yours faithfully,

Cherise Rudolfo

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 8

representative release have been allowed for representatives within the
Directorate of Network Operations of London Underground Limited in the
last 12 months or calendar year 2017.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can
confirm that we hold the information you require.  You asked: Please
provide data on how many days of trade union representative release have
been allowed for representatives within the Directorate of Network
Operations of London Underground Limited in the last 12 months, though if
it is easier to do a calendar year then please provide 2017.

 

Over 2017 we recognised 421 employees as Trade Union representatives. In
total, these employees requested to be released from work on 16,215
occasions.  Their release covered negotiations and consultation
activities, health and safety and learning matters as well as supporting
employees on individual issues.

 

We recognise seven trade unions for the purposes of collective bargaining:
ASLEF, PCS, Prospect, RMT, TSSA, Unite the Union and Unison. We worked
with the unions throughout the year and always strive to have a
constructive and professional relationship, recognising the vital role
they play within the organisation at all levels. This includes
negotiations and consultation activities, as well as supporting their
members on individual issues.

 

Our unions continue to make a valuable contribution to the health, safety
and wellbeing of our staff, with union health and safety representatives
throughout the company. Representatives also play an active role in
equality and learning matters.

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, please do not hesitate
