POA Circulars

167 | 12.11.2013

Use of social media

It has been drawn to the attention of the Executive that more and more staff are facing disciplinary action following comments/postings on social media sites.

NOMS published the attached NTS in July “Using Social Media Responsibly – A Reminder to Staff”. They have also published the attached intranet article “Social Media – when is being ‘social’ crossing the line”? The NEC did not agree to the NTS or intranet article.

The Executive would like to remind all members of the ‘risks’ when posting on social media sites.

Please draw the contents of this circular to your members.

Thanking you in anticipation of your support and co-operation.

Yours sincerely


General Secretary
