Sudbury jail workers protest ‘dangerous’ working conditions

About a dozen corrections officers at the jail in Sudbury, Ont. rallied in the rain on Thursday to express their frustration over what they call an unsafe workplace.

The 95 staff at the jail have been without a contract since November 2014, and this week their union rejected a proposed contract from the province.
