Probation officers plan to strike

Issue No. 1822

Probation officers have backed a plan to strike over staff shortages and workloads. Delegates at the probation officers' Napo union conference in Eastbourne, East Sussex, last week overwhelmingly agreed on a one-day strike, boycotts and work to rule action.

Over 500 voted in favour of the action with just ten against. The action will involve 7,700 members in England and Wales.
