Trade Union Facilities Template

Trade Union facilities are one of the most critical elements to building union power in the workplace. You should endeavour to agree and sign an agreement on facilities with your employer at the same time as your recognition agreement (refer to Work, Voice, Pay Recognition Template for more information). If you have already got recognition but no formalised facilities seek to sign a comprehensive agreement with your employer as soon as possible. The facilities agreement is the backbone of the recognition agreement. It formally sets out with the employer the rights of  Reps. This guide and template should help you develop your own tailored to your needs.
