Probation officers in the Napo union were set to strike on Tuesday of next week.
The walkout will begin at 12 noon on Tuesday and end at 12 noon on Wednesday. The action is against plans to privatise the probation service and will hit services in England and Wales.
Workers voted for strikes by 84 percent in a recent ballot.
