Following talks over the last month, UNISON is pleased to an-nounce that we will be providing financial assistance to Napo in respect of our sister union’s spe-cific costs in making its application to the courts in relation to judicial review proceedings regarding Transforming Rehabilitation. As you will be aware, Napo has now submitted its grounds for seeking judicial review to the courts.
Dave Prentis, UNISON General Secretary, who was personally involved in the discussions with Napo General Secretary Ian Lawrence, confirmed: ‘‘UNISON is proud to be able to assist our sister union in this way and we wish Napo every success in this vital endeavour. Napo, UNISON and GMB have worked together very well on the campaign against TR and we will continue working together for the joint benefit of our combined membership in probation.’
