Trade Union learning representatives
An employee who is a member of an independent trade union which is recognised by the employer and who is a Union Learning Representative must be allowed reasonable time off with pay during working hours to:
- carry out those duties that relate to Union Learning Representatives; or
- undergo training relevant to the duties of a Union Learning Representative.
The LRA can provide guidance on the time off to be permitted by an employer for Union Learning Representatives.
