Probation members in England and Wales are being asked to vote for strike action – and vote yes to action short of a strike – in a ballot opening on 1 May and closing on 20 May.

Earlier this year, 96% of members taking part in a consultation over the employers’ 2014 pay offer of 0% voted to reject it.

In response, the employers have now put forward a “full and final offer” of a non-consolidated £340 lump sum to “eligible staff” – which means just those who are at the top of their pay band.

Because the lump sum is not being consolidated into salaries, it will not count towards pensions.
