Probation Unions lodge formal dispute on ‘One HMPPS’

Share this


This week Napo, UNISON and GMB formally lodged a dispute with HMPPS over the ‘One HMPPS’ programme.

We have done so principally because we are dissatisfied with the outcomes from the consultative process and also, that we believe ‘One HMPPS’ presents a barrier to the unions joint campaign for an independent Probation service, accountable to the communities that it serves.

Although we are in dispute, the unions will be maintaining engagement with HMPPS in the interests of our respective members.

A joint statement from the unions explaining the above in more detail and the next steps will be issued to members early next week
