Strike a potential safety threat

“I can assure you gone are the days when we were just looking after the little old lady who shoplifted,” said Scott McIntyre, probation and parole health and safety chair for the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU).

“I’m quite worried for local communities if we are on the picket line.”

The client list for probation and parole officers in North Bay includes high-risk sex offenders, mental health clients and individuals charged with domestic violence.
