POA Circulars

The National Executive has become aware that many workplaces are experiencing problems with the prevalence of rats and mice in the workplace.

Please find attached NEC minutes for the 14th September 2023 for your information.

Please bring the contents of this circular to the attention of all POA members.

The above workshop will be held from Tuesday 28th to Thursday 30th November 2023 at the Quorn Grange Hotel, Wood Lane, Quorn, Loughborough.

The POA are seeking applications for consideration to sit on our internal conduct committee under Rule 26.3 which states:

TUC Education are running an Introduction to Health and Safety taster for women union members at 1100hrs on 3rd October 2023.

Please be reminded that the current policy of the POA is not to engage in completion of the employer’s annual staff survey. This was determined via Conference Motion 42/2010 carried & reaffirmed by Conference Motion 86/2015 not being adopted.

Please find attached NEC minutes for the 30th August 2023 for your information.

Please find attached guidance that was sent to all Governors mid-August.

I am pleased to announce after discussions and negotiations our Annual Conference will be held from Tuesday 21 – Thursday 23 May 2024 inclusive at the Floral Hall, Welcome Building, Eastbourne and will be three days in duration.

Representing over 30,000 Prison, Correctional and Secure Psychiatric Workers, the POA is the largest UK Union in this sector, able to trace its roots back more than 100 years.
