Administrative / Biographical History

The National and Provincial Staff Association was created in December 1983 by the amalgamation of the Burnley Building Society Staff Association and the Provincial Building Society Staff Association (PROSTAFF). NAPSA had between 75% and 80% of eligible staff in membership, which peaked at around 2,600. It originally had a regional committee structure with a national committee and a small executive but went through a number of structural changes during its existence. It transferred its engagements to the Banking, Insurance and Finance Union in July 1997.
