High court proceedings Friday 19th October 2018

Today at the High Court the POA won the right to have their objections to HMPPS proposals to impose changes to working conditions heard at trial.

These changes are specifically the Youth Custody Estate, Advanced Prison Officers and Additional Contract Hours.

This means that the Employer had to place on hold all their plans to impose their proposals on the workforce.

The trial is scheduled for December.

Thank you all for your continued support.

For and on behalf of the NEC.

Yours sincerely


Mark Fairhurst
National Chair
