At the NEC meeting of 10th June 2020 POA affiliation to the European Public Service Union (EPSU) and Public Services International (PSI) was discussed. The financial implications of affiliation to these Organisations (£13000 pa) was discussed and also whether the POA’s international strategy could be better progressed through our existing affiliation to the Trades Union Congress (TUC) and the General Federation of Trade Unions (GFTU). It was therefore proposed;
“To disaffiliate from EPSU and PSI.”
This was seconded and Carried.
The General Secretary will now write to EPSU and PSI informing them of the NEC’s decision.
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.
