Departmental Training

Volume 472: debated on Monday 25 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills what trade union programmes are funded by his Department that pertain to training in (a) arbitration, (b) industrial action, (c) employment rights and (d) work as a shop steward. (178237)

DIUS was created in July 2007 by the amalgamation of elements from BERR (formerly DTI) and DCSF (formerly DfES).

The Department is currently defining its policies and procedures around the provision for trade union support. As a consequence it has not yet established such training programmes.
