E-Petitions

The National Executive Committee debated the 2 e-petitions, which are currently live in respect of Stab Proof Vests for all uniformed staff in the Prison Service and Trade Union Rights for the POA.

It is vital that both e-petitions attract the necessary support to force Parliament to debate these key issues.  Therefore, the NEC would ask all POA members to sign both e-petitions and encourage their family and friends to also show solidarity and join forces with the Union.

The POA have asked other trade unions to canvass support on these e-petitions in an attempt to gain the necessary support.

The e-petitions can be found at;
