Prison Service Pay Review Body - Written Evidence 2015-2016

It has been brought to the attention of the National Executive Committee that NOMS have published their evidence for the 2O15/16 pay submission to the PSPRB. NOMS are of course entitled to provide information to their employees.

The POA have provided our own evidence as have other unions within the NOMS TUC group. The employer and the POA have a distinct difference of opinion on what should be a fair and just pay award for POA members.

The POA has agreed to a joint submission on certain areas of the pay submission with NOMS. However, be in no doubt that the POA have fundamental differences with the employer in respect of the pay claim for 2O15/16, which has been forwarded through our written submission and will be further evidenced when the POA delegation meet with the PSPRB on 30th October, 2014. For the avoidance of doubt, the POA have submitted a claim for a 3% consolidated pay rise alongside an increase in allowances.

Please feel free to access the POA full written submission on the POA website.

Yours sincerely

General Secretary
