Nobody ever suggested that putting Probation back together from the fragmentation caused by Transforming Rehabilitation would be easy. This is why Napo Officials and Officers have been fully engaged in negotiations on future restructuring in the NPS and the extensive consultation within CRCs on the ‘measures’ that will support the transfer of staff to the NPS or providers of Dynamic Framework support services to be commissioned by the new probation regions. Napo is currently engaging with these providers to explore the possibilities of establishing collective bargaining arrangements, but meanwhile it is very important that any Napo members based in a CRC who are moving into the DF sector retain your Napo membership.
Equally important is for all Napo members who work for a CRC, but are not yet paying your Napo Subscriptions by Direct Debit, to make the switch as soon as possible. Simply go to www.napo.org.uk/SWITCH or contact Jacqui in our membership section: email@example.com for assistance.
