POA submission to the Prison Service Pay Review Body (PSRB) 2013/14

On the 18th of September 2012, members of the Executive met with the Chairman and administration of the PSPRB to discuss the process and key topics which the POA will need to cover in this years’ submission in respect of Pay and Allowances.

At the meeting the Chair of the PSPRB handed out the activation letter from Jeremy Wright Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Justice. (copy attached).

This initial meeting was cordial and informative for all parties concerned. The POA will now continue to prepare its written evidence to the PSPRB this will need to be completed by the end of October 2012. In an attempt to persuade the PSPRB to recommend a fair and just, cost of living pay increase it is vital that the attached pro-forma is completed and returned to Debbie Davis secretarial support to the POA’s Pay Review Sub Committee no later than Monday the 8th October 2012, as we need to ensure our submission is factual and evidence based.

All returns must be e-mailed to debbie@poauk.org.uk posted or faxed to Cronin House. 

Your evidence to the questions posed will greatly assist the Executive in presenting the best possible case for a cost of living pay rise to the PSPRB for POA members within the remit group.

On behalf of the National Executive Committee I would like to thank you in anticipation of your total support and co-operation on this matter.

Yours sincerely



General Secretary
