This paper seeks your views on the Government’s proposals to give Union Learning Representatives the same rights to paid time off for their initial training and to carry out their duties as those enjoyed by shop stewards and other union representatives at workplaces where a union is recognised for collective bargaining purposes. The new proposals do not intend to assign any new rights to bargain over training or learning. We are seeking your opinions on a number of specific questions relating to the current proposals.
