Joint Napo/UNISON Courts Staff Member Survey

Please find attached a joint Napo/UNISON bulletin setting out the results of a joint union survey of courts staff members carried out earlier this spring. The survey results make very clear that courts staff members do not support the proposal from the Probation Service that court duty officers/court PSOs/enforcement officers should prosecute contested breach trials.

UNISON is taking up the results of the survey with the Probation Service with the aim of removing this proposal and creating a Senior Enforcement Officer role at pay band 4, or above, to do this work instead.
