Campaigning for trade union facility time to support NASUWT lay activists in carrying out trade union duties and activities is an important priority for the NASUWT.

In addition to helping to ensure that NASUWT members receive their legal rights to representation and that representatives receive time off with pay to represent members, trade union facility time supports the wider role of the NASUWT in contributing to positive and productive employee relations, which is vital to raising and maintaining standards at school and academy trust level.

Key advice documents on securing trade union facility time produced by the NASUWT for lay activists are available on this page.
