Facility Time

The request was successful.

John Gallacher

Dear Dundee and Angus College,

Under Freedom of Information Scotland, I wish to receive the following information within 20 working days:

(1) How many hours of facility time per week are allocated to the various trade unions within your college for local business and how is this determined? Is it allocated by trade union or by steward? Please provide a breakdown by trade union.

(2) How many stewards do you have for each recognised union?

(3) Over and above the core allocation to the stewards involved in the local bargaining machinery, do you provide additional facility time to health and safety, learning or equalities reps? If so, please detail arrangements for each trade union and indicate whether or not this allocation is already covered in your response to question one or whether this is additional.

(4) Is more time given to stewards who are involved in the local bargaining machinery to those who are not? Please specify the amount per week for each trade union.

(5) Are any of your local stewards involved in the national bargaining machinery? If so, how much time is allocated to them per week to facilitate this and how many stewards are involved? Please detail for each trade union and indicate whether or not this time is already included in your response to question one or whether this is an additional allocation.

(6) Are any of your local stewards on facility time to run a trade union branch? If so, how many for each trade union and how many hours per week are allocated? Again, is this additional to the response provided for question one?

(7) When stewards are on union business, are there back-filling arrangements in place to cover their work? Please detail the arrangements for each of the recognised unions.

(8) Does your college support the notion of a central facility time fund whereby each college within the sector pays an equal share of the costs associated with national bargaining?

(9) If you answered yes to question 8, please indicate whether or not this position has been put formally to the Employers Association in any relevant discussions/votes.

Yours faithfully,

John Gallacher

Dundee and Angus College

following:
* Send the message again following these steps: In Outlook, open this
non-delivery report (NDR) and choose Send Again from the Report

suggestion don't select it. After typing the complete address, click
Send.
* Contact the recipient (by phone, for example) to check that the
address is correct.
* The recipient may have set up email forwarding to an incorrect

More Info for Email Admins
Status code 554 5.4.14

Typically this error occurs because the recipient email address is
incorrect or doesn't exist at the destination domain. This can usually be
fixed by the sender. However, sometimes the issue needs to be fixed by the
recipient or the recipient's email admin. If the steps in the How to Fix
It section above don't fix the problem, and you're the email admin for the
recipient, try one or more of the following:

The email address exists and is correct - Confirm that the recipient
address exists, is correct, and is accepting messages.

Synchronize your directories - If you have a hybrid environment and are
using directory synchronization make sure the recipient's email address is
synced correctly in both Office 365 and in your on-premises directory.

Errant forwarding rule - Check for forwarding rules that aren't behaving
as expected. A forwarding rule can be configured by an admin via mail flow
rules or mailbox forwarding address settings, or by the recipient via the
Inbox Rules feature.

Mail flow settings and MX records are not correct - Misconfigured mail
flow settings or MX records can cause this error. Check your Office 365
mail flow settings to make sure your domain and any mail flow connectors
are set up correctly. Also, work with your domain registrar to make sure
the MX records for your domain are configured correctly.

Mail loop detected - This error also indicates that the receiving
organization's email settings are misconfigured, creating a mail loop when
a message is sent to an address that isn't found in their directory. This
usually won't disrupt mail flow for recipients that actually exist, but
the recipient's email admin should fix the misconfiguration to reduce the
chance of any other mail flow issues. A common cause for this loop is that
the recipient's domain is configured as "Internal Relay" when it should be
"Authoritative." Another common cause for the loop is that both the sender
and recipient are part of the same organization, but the sender's mailbox
is hosted by Office 365, while the recipient's mailbox is hosted
on-premises, and an outbound connector from Office 365 to the on-premises
email servers is missing or misconfigured. To fix this, the recipient's
email admin should create a correctly configured outbound connector in
Office 365 to route the message to the on-premises mailbox.

For more information and tips to fix this problem, see [3]Fix email
delivery issues for error code 5.4.14 in Office 365.

(1) How many hours of facility time per week are allocated to the various trade unions within your college for local business and how is this determined? Is it allocated by trade union or by steward? Please provide a breakdown by trade union.

EIS-FELA 18
GMB - No specific weekly allocation
Unison - No specific weekly allocation

Actual time utilised is detailed on an annual basis within the College annual accounts in accordance with the Trade Union Facility Time Publication Requirements Regulations 2017.

(2) How many stewards do you have for each recognised union?

Main representatives are:
EIS-FELA - 5
GMB - 2
Unison - 2

Others representatives are engaged and receive facility time as appropriate.

(3) Over and above the core allocation to the stewards involved in the local bargaining machinery, do you provide additional facility time to health and safety, learning or equalities reps? If so, please detail arrangements for each trade union and indicate whether or not this allocation is already covered in your response to question one or whether this is additional.

Included in above arrangements.

(4) Is more time given to stewards who are involved in the local bargaining machinery to those who are not? Please specify the amount per week for each trade union.

Time is allocated as required for union duties.

(5) Are any of your local stewards involved in the national bargaining machinery? If so, how much time is allocated to them per week to facilitate this and how many stewards are involved? Please detail for each trade union and indicate whether or not this time is already included in your response to question one or whether this is an additional allocation.

No

(6) Are any of your local stewards on facility time to run a trade union branch? If so, how many for each trade union and how many hours per week are allocated? Again, is this additional to the response provided for question one?

Time is allocated as required for union duties.

(7) When stewards are on union business, are there back-filling arrangements in place to cover their work? Please detail the arrangements for each of the recognised unions.

For EIS-FELA time is allocated within timetabling system. GMB and Unison work flexibly as required to fulfil union duties.

(8) Does your college support the notion of a central facility time fund whereby each college within the sector pays an equal share of the costs associated with national bargaining?

This cannot be answered as it would depend upon the specifics of the proposal

(9) If you answered yes to question 8, please indicate whether or not this position has been put formally to the Employers Association in any relevant discussions/votes.

See answer 8 above.
