PRISON REFORM/AUTONOMY PRISONS CONFERENCE REPORT BACK

At the POA’s 78th Annual Conference Motion (8A) formerly Motion 11 was accepted;

“That Conference give the Autonomy/Reform Pilot Prisons Branch Committee’s the immediate authority to engage with the Executive Governor’s on local issues that have a direct impact on the membership of Autonomy Pilot Prisons. However, issues that remain part of National Prison Officer Terms and Conditions remain within the remit of the NEC.”

This Motion was accepted and now forms part of the Union’s Policy.

Therefore, in line with Conference Policy all affected committees should advise their Executive Governor of this remit.

I intend to provide a report back on the progression of Conference Motions by way of POA Circular rather than waiting until the start of next year’s Conference as is the current system.

Please draw the contents of this Circular to your members.

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

Yours Sincerely


Steve Gillan
General Secretary
