Conference
2018 Police & Justice Service Group Conference
Date
14 June 2018
Decision
Carried

Staff working in the Probation service, both within the Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRCs) and the National Probation Service (NPS) have had a rough ride over the last ten years with regards their pay. The last time they had an actual pay rise was back in 2009 where they got the paltry amount of 1%, probably the worst deal in the public sector. Not only have Probation staff not had a pay rise, it can take 20 years to progress through their pay band!

This cannot be right, it has to change and it has to change now.

Conference calls upon the Service Group Executive to:

1)Work with the relevant bodies to campaign and negotiate fair and equitable pay structures for CRCs and NPS;

2)Work with the relevant bodies to explore any legal implications or solutions of overly long pay bands.
