Further to NIPSA Bulletin B-14-20 dated 20 October 2020 I am writing to confirm that Trade
Union Side met with Management Side on Friday 23 October 2020.

This was the first negotiating meeting and Management Side and Trade Union Side have
exchanged initial views on the Trade Union Side claim for an above inflation pay increase, a
significant move to address pay restoration and further scale shortening.

Further meetings are scheduled to take place over the coming weeks. Whenever there is
something of substance to report on the negotiations a further bulletin will be issued.
