Out Now – Probation News July 2013

On our Toolkit page

We make a very important announcement

From 8 July, you will receive an important survey in the post from UNISON to ask you two ques-tions:

1.  Do you oppose the Government’s plans to break up the Probation Service?
2.  Would you be prepared to take industrial action to defend your job, your terms and conditions and your pension, later this year, if this were necessary?

No trade union undertakes industrial action lightly, but it may be that such action will be needed to protect your interests as negotiations progress over the Govern-ment’s plans. Industrial action can take many forms, up to and including strike action, and no decision has been taken yet on the form it might take. First, members must show their support for it.
