The Trade Union Act 2016 (Political Funds) (Transition Period) Regulations 2017. SI 2017/130

In Force: In accordance with reg.1. The Trade Union Act 2016 s.11 makes changes to provisions in the Trade Union and Labour Relations Consolidation Act 1992 which apply to contributions made by members to political funds set up by unions and employer associations. These Regulations specify the length of the transition period which must expire before the Regulations come into force. The 2016 Act provides that the period must be no less than 12 months. After consulting with the Certification Officer and all trade unions that have a political fund, as the 2016 Act requires, the Secretary of State has specified that the transition period will be 12 months which is to commence on 1 March 2017.
