Napo is a campaigning union ...
Excessive workloads continue to have a massive adverse impact on the physical and mental wellbeing of members and moreover it prohibits the ability of staff working in Probation to carry out their job in a safe and professional way.
AGM resolution 5 passed at the recent AGM in Cardiff notes that workloads continue to be unacceptably high, across both the NPS and CRCs and this is not sustainable. Napo launched its 3Cs Workload Campaign on 8th February. The aim of the campaign is three-fold:
- 1) Confront the issue of high workloads
- 2) Challenge the employers to address them
- 3) Champion professional Standards
In 2016, Napo helped to secure a comprehensive probation pay review. The review has been positive with employers' representatives recognising the problems that Napo has been highlighting for years. Now the review is entering a critical phase, with officials seeking additional resources from the government to address the problems. Against a backdrop of continuing uncertainty across probation, Napo sees this as a once in a generation opportunity to make a real difference through positive intervention on pay and professional recognition across probation.
