POA Circulars

36 | 30.04.2015


Following the acceptance of the NOMS/POA 2015 agreement, it was determined to establish dedicated teams to engage in collective bargaining/negotiations on a number of issues.

Members of the Executive have held talks with NOMS and established a basis of an agreement to address issues appertaining to OSG’s/Band 2’s. Whilst this draft is a significant step forward further talks are due to take place and legal advice is being sought on the contents of the draft agreement.

The Executive are fully aware of the concerns of members who were excluded from receiving the bonus retention payment from NOMS and these discussions and future talks will hopefully address those concerns.

Once the Executive are in a position to give further information on this and other matters this will be promulgated to the membership by way of a POA Circular.

Please draw the content of this Circular to your members attention.

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

Yours sincerely


General Secretary
