OPSEU requests no board report in correctional workers labour dispute

Correctional workers in the province could be on strike or locked out as early as January 18 after a no board report was filed.

The Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) called for a no board report Friday, setting the stage for the legal strike or a potential lockout after contract talks with the Province stalled.

“There is a crisis in corrections,” OPSEU President Warren (Smokey) Thomas said. “Our jails are overcrowded, understaffed and increasingly violent.”
