Bring back probation service into public ownership




UNISON has backed a call for probation services in England and Wales to be brought back into public ownership.

The launch of a petition by campaign group We Own It comes shortly after a joint letter on the issue from UNISON, GMB and probation officers’ union NAPO was sent to justice secretary David Gauke.

That, in turn, followed the collapse of one of the ‘community rehabilitation companies’ which have took over probation services for ‘non-serious’ offenders under former justice secretary Chris Grayling’s privatisation in 2015.

There’s a petition to sign in favour of renationalisation. It can be signed after following the link below.
