PCS expresses solidarity with POA protest

14 Sep 2018

Members of the Prison Officers Association walked protested across the country today at the appalling conditions faced by prison officers and inmates.

Pledging solidarity with the Prison Officers Association protest today, PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka said: “We stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in the POA who have taken this action today.

“Prisons have become unsafe places to work due to government cuts and poor health and safety conditions for both prison officers and inmates.

“The government should listen very carefully to what the POA is saying, restore their basic trade union rights and take responsibility for the mess they have created through their reckless handling of our prison system.”
