Independent Survey Commissioned by the POA

You will be aware that following POA Circular 178/13 the National Executive Committee have commissioned Professor Gail Kinman and Dr Andrew Clements to survey the POA membership regarding their views in a number of areas.

All of the preparatory work for this has now been completed and the survey will commence on the 14th April 2014 and run until the 12th May 2014.

This is an online survey only and will be available for ALL members to complete via a link on the members section of the POA website.

To access this go to www.poauk.org.uk and select “Members Area” in the upper right hand side of the home page. You will then need to input your surname and the last 5 digits of your membership number. Once you enter the members only area you will clearly see “POA Members Survey” option.

The NEC are aware that some of our members will not know or have access to their membership number therefore we have provided an up to date membership list to all POA Branch committees. If you are not sure of your membership number the NEC would ask that in the first instance, to contact a member of your local POA Committee to obtain your number. If you are unable to get in touch with a local POA rep you can then contact one of the POA offices who will be able to help.

NRO 0113 242 8833

Scotland Calder Road 0131 443 8105

Northern Ireland Castell House 02891 861 928

In order for this project to be the success the NEC are hoping for, it is vital to achieve high levels of membership participation and we would ask that all POA members complete the survey and to encourage your colleagues to do the same.

This is your chance to be heard please use it.

Can I take this opportunity to thank all POA members from across the whole union for your support and assistance on this matter.

Yours sincerely

General Secretary
