To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what percentage of workers employed directly by his Department belonged to a trade union in each of the last five years for which data is available.

The only data held on this is at December 2014 when the number of staff within the MoJ (including HMPPS) that were members of trades unions was 43,286 which equated to 63.21% of staff numbers. Following the removal of check-off as a method of payment for members to pay for union subscriptions, it is no longer possible for the department to verify the numbers of staff that are currently trade union members.
