Striking probation officers are picketing the Doncaster probation office today as part of their dispute over privatisation.

Almost 40 members of the National Association of Probation Officers based at the Bennetthorpe office walked out at 12pm yesterday and will be on strike until midnight today.

The strike will mean probation reports are not compiled for the Crown and magistrates’ courts and offenders on probation are not being supervised. The union has agreed that probation hostels will be staffed.
