By nine applications the applicant made sixteen complaints against his Union, the POA (Prison Officers’ Association). Fifteen related to alleged breaches of the 2004 rules and one to an alleged breach of Annex D to the 2005 rules (titled “Tackling Unacceptable Behaviour”). Twelve of the complaints were dismissed and four upheld. The Certification Officer made an enforcement order requiring the Union to treat its decision to expel the applicant as void.
