POA Circulars

21 | 29.03.2016


The Rules and Constitution are clear that under Rule 5, we will have a retired members section and that qualification for retired membership is having been a full member until ceasing qualification for full membership under Rule 4.1.

Under Rule 5.1(b) there should be a Retired Members Committee comprising;

  • Chairperson
  • Vice Chairperson
  • Secretary
  • Up to two committee members.

The NEC under Rule 5 (g) have determined that it is time the personnel of the Retired Members Committee was looked at and we thank all previous retired members who originally sat on this committee.

The Executive recognise that retired members have vast experience and can and should be an integral part of this trade union.

If any retired member wishes to be considered for the above posts please send expressions of interest to the General Secretary no later than Friday, 29th April 2016. Applications should be sent to nicola@poauk.org.uk

Yours sincerely


General Secretary
