As part of the TUC campaign all KEY WORKERS deserve a pay rise, the POA support this campaign for all key workers. Let me make it clear Prison Officer Grades, OSGs and Custodial Workers are key workers, as are all our POA members in secure hospitals or wherever they work.

I would first of all like to offer my thanks to the Prison Service Pay Review Body (PSPRB) for their hard
work, insight and rigour through which they developed their report for prison service pay for the past year.

Representing over 30,000 Prison, Correctional and Secure Psychiatric Workers, the POA is the largest UK Union in this sector, able to trace its roots back more than 100 years.
