Ian talks about the working relationship with National Chair Katie Lomas, Napo’s feminist agenda and pays tribute to the efforts of our members and activists in Napo Cymru following the major victory against Probation Privatisation on May 16th
Ian sets out the political landscape faced by working people ahead of a likely General election; urging Napo members to carefully consider the choices before them and how we should oppose the rise in Racism in our society.
Ian outlines Napo’s continuing negotiating priorities in respect of the proposed future model for Probation. Making it clear that Napo remains implacably opposed to the concept of a ‘mixed market’ where Interventions, Rehabilitation and Programmes are deemed to be inferior services to those provided in the NPS. Ian also explains why the Union will not rest until pay parity is achieved for CRC members, the compelling case for employment protections in the event that new Probation Provider contracts emerge, and the restoration of full collective bargaining.
