Probation Restructure to Threaten TUPE?

Back to all Motions

2013 Police & Justice Conference
12 June 2013

Probation members perform a vast diversity of roles within the Public Sector Probation Service. Our members are skilled, dedicated, and experienced in the supervision and case management of all tiers of offenders.

However, should this government’s plans to fragment the probation service as we know it come to fruition, and the staff group is split between the public and private sector then, conference fears, local employers will seek to restructure and manoeuvre staff in an attempt to undermine legislative protections.

Conference calls on the Police & Justice Service Group Executive to seek reassurance from the relevant government ministers and employers that probation members’ current roles are protected throughout the transfer process.
