To ask Her Majesty’s Government how much was paid to the trade union Unite and its predecessor unions in relation to the Union Modernisation Fund and the Union Learning Fund in each year since the payments commenced; and what were the total payments to trade unions from those two funds respectively in each year since their commencement.
Of the three rounds of the Union Modernisation Fund (UMF) programme between 2005-2013 the trade union Unite previously known as Amicus and Accord were paid a grant of £128,105.62 and £316,619.50 for projects under round one and round two respectively. They did not receive any funding under round three.
Each round of the UMF covered a period of approximately two to three years.
All UMF projects are now completed and there are no further rounds of the UMF programme planned.
Since the commencement of the Union Learning Fund total payments made to the trade union Unite and its predecessor unions are as follows:
