PDA Union clarifies some of the issues around claims being made by the Boots Pharmacists’ Association

In recent communications from the BPA, there are some statements which we believe are confusing regarding the reality of the BPA’s relationship with Boots. We believe it is important to let you have the facts.

At the PDA Union, it’s important to us that Boots pharmacists and pre-registration graduates have all the facts they need to make an informed decision when voting on BPA derecognition.

Derecognition simply means removing the agreement made in 2012 between the BPA and Boots, which blocks pharmacists and pre-registration graduates from negotiating better working conditions through an independent union – the PDA Union. The BPA will continue to exist and can have a relationship with Boots as it has done for 40 years if the agreement is removed. Thousands of pharmacists want the PDA Union to negotiate on their behalf and Boots pharmacists now have the opportunity to vote for a better future at work. The PDA Union has vast experience in pharmacy and a passion for the profession, including over 250 years of combined experience, in its national team, of working for Boots.
