NAPO strike action 31st March / 1st April 2014

I have been informed by the NAPO General Secretary, Ian Lawrence that a strike by Probation Staff has been called commencing at midday on the 31st March 2014 and throughout the day on the 1st April 2014.

NAPO and the POA have a good relationship and indeed Ian Lawrence was a guest speaker at our Rally on the 19th March 2014. I will also be speaking at their Rally on the 1st April 2014, offering solidarity to their members in their fight for justice.

POA members during the strike action of NAPO should not do any of their work. Where possible and if NAPO have official pickets at any of our establishments we should show solidarity and stand with them prior to your shift commencing and at lunch time.

I am sure we all wish our colleagues all the very best on their days of action and hope it is a success.

Yours sincerely

General Secretary
