Police Negotiating Board for Scotland: constitution

The Police Negotiating Board for Scotland (PNBS) is a public body that negotiates the pay, terms and conditions of Police Officers in Scotland, through collective bargaining. The constitution sets out how the PNBS will reach agreements, or if failing to agree, how conciliation and/or arbitration is carried out.


22. The Board must be quorate for agreements of the Board to be made. To be quorate there must be 8 members present at a meeting, with at least 4 members from each of the official side and staff side. If a meeting of the Board is found not to be quorate the Chairperson may either suspend the meeting or continue with the meeting, with any decisions of the Board postponed to the next quorate Board meeting.
