As you know, UNISON members in the National Probation Service and Community Rehabilitation Companies have voted for industrial action over the 0% pay offer for 2014.
73% voted yes to take part in a strike and 88% voted yes to action short of strike action.
UNISON’s National Probation Committee met yesterday to consider the outcome of the ballot and have agreed a programme of industrial action which has subsequently been endorsed by UNISON’s industrial action committee.
UNISON hopes that the ballot result will encourage the employers to re-open pay talks to improve the offer, however if they do not, the industrial action will start with a 24 hour strike on Thursday 11 June and be followed by a period of action short of strike action.
Further information on the programme of industrial action will be issued next week after thew Branch Executive meet on Wednesday
