Please can you confirm whether TfL gives its recognised trade unions the facility to display information on staff intranet, internal social media and electronic notice boards (resources that are already used by internal and external organisations and advertisers) and if not, when this will be made available?

Transport for London’s (TfL) intranet currently publicises the quarterly Trade Union Fair where all seven recognised unions hold an open event to talk about the value of trade unions in the workplace. The intranet also contains specific information on the unions in London Underground and is a place where employees can access the documents that describe how TfL and the unions engage on joint consultation and collective bargaining in the interests of TfL.

A review is underway with the unions of the TfL Framework for Consultation and Collective Bargaining and the future facilities available to the unions is an important aspect of this. TfL will carefully consider any representations made to extend facilities to include displaying information on the intranet, internal social media and electronic notice boards.
