CRISIS IN CORRECTIONS: A BAD TIME TO GET ARRESTED

With OPSEU poised to strike on January 10, 2016 we are already experiencing job actions by correctional services employees. This includes jail guards, probation and parole officers. Inmates are already reporting inhumane conditions of being in 24 hour lockup without food or medical or other services. Jail guards are refusing to release prisoners for transport to courts and even refusing to present prisoners for video appearances for purposes of bail hearings or trials. Visitation to jails has been restricted or completely refused. Things can only be expected to get worse if “managers” take over. If you’re arrested and taken to a jail on remand, it may be a long time before you get back to court. There are 2 sides to every dispute however here is a link to OPSEU’s site for information: https://opseu.org/crisis-corrections
I can’t find any information about it on the Ministry’s site: http://www.mcscs.jus.gov.on.ca/english/default.html
