POA Circulars

71 | 18.04.2011

Muslim Service

The National Executive have agreed the following protocol with NOMS.

Where Establishments have high numbers of attendees at Muslim Service, it would be prudent to re-profile.  This will allow a more flexible approach to prayer time, whilst delivering a safe system of work using maximum staff resources available.

Where Establishments have low numbers attending Muslim prayers, it will be for local Management in negotiation with local POA officials to decide whether to re-profile or devise a shift conversion protocol using volunteers.

Thanking you in anticipation of your support.

 

Yours sincerely

STEVE GILLAN
General Secretary
