As a result of the ongoing pandemic and the fact that it is not possible for branches to hold actual meetings, NIPSA made a request to NICS Management for NIPSA representatives to be given access to NICS video-conferencing facilities for trade union business. 
Management has responded to indicate that, subject to Departmental approval, NIPSA representatives can avail of the NICS video-conferencing tools.  This will enable branch representatives and Officials to communicate with members through meetings on all NIPSA related matters including pay.
The attached letter includes details of how to access the various tools and how to apply for access.  Please follow the guidance and liaise with your Departmental Business Relationship Manager.
