Text and MMS Alerts

The Executive are constantly looking at ways to improve communication with members. It has been suggested that text and MMS alerts could be used to make members aware of breaking news and/or information.

In order to assist the Executive in ascertaining whether this means of communication is viable, can you confirm how many of your members would be prepared to provide their mobile telephone number to the union to receive such alerts?

I recognise that this is seeking a straw poll of your members at this stage but, if we receive sufficient interest further information will be requested in due course.

I would be grateful if you forward your replies to Ellen Fardy at ellen@poauk.org.uk no later than Thursday 16th December 2012.


Yours sincerely



General Secretary
