At the NEC meeting on 11th April 2018 the National Executive Committee debated and determined they would set up a Young Members Committee within the POA.

Young members make a difference in the workplace by campaigning on the issues that affect them directly, such as job security and training, workplace rights and pay and conditions.

  • Provide a powerful voice for young members
  • Give young members the opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to participate in the union.
