Please find attached the joint NNC/SCCOG circular which updates Trusts and Trade Unions on the progress towards the development of an HR Framework to underpin the Government’s Transforming Rehabilitation reform proposals.
The circular confirms that negotiations at both the NNC and SCCOG will concentrate on:
· Joint commitment to a guarantee of employment for staff in either the new National Probation Service or one of the Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRCs)
· A national framework for restructuring the Probation workforce
· A nationally agreed voluntary severance/voluntary early retirement scheme to support restructuring
· Future national collective bargaining structures for both the new National Probation Service and the CRCs.
