Contact Us

This section contains contact details for PCS in NOMS branch.

Branch officers are on 50% facility time and spend half their time doing an official job.  Branch committee members have area responsibilities which are highlighted in the contact list. Branch committee members have no fixed facility time, but will be able to use ad-hoc facility time to visit members and consider personal cases.

Contact details are divided into PCS HQ, branch officers and branch executive committee members.

The branch officers can spend up to half their working week on trade union facility time and area reps have 'ad-hoc' facility time.

All elected lay reps have official jobs within NOMS workplaces.

If you have a local PCS representative in your workplace please make them your first point of contact.

Support arrangements

Each area is supported by a member and/or officer of the branch committee.

Please note that the branch committee member (or person named) for your workplace should be your point of contact if no local rep is available. If unavailable then please contact other BEC members in your region. Please note branch officers may have limited availability due to workload.

The branch committee member(s) and branch officer will work together to ensure all prisons and workplaces within the area are covered with regular membership meetings and also responding to queries and representing members on personal cases.
