Federal government policies endanger frontline workers
(EDMONTON, June 25, 2012) The Union of Canadian Correctional Officers (UCCO-SACC-CSN) in the Prairies region is increasingly concerned over a wave of violence at Regional Psychiatric Centre in Saskatoon.
Mobilization. When most members hear this word, they think contract negotiations, demonstrations, or early morning information lines in the dead of winter. Mobilization is one of the major elements of the strength of the Union and its key to success is the participation and support of our members.
On May 27th and 28th there was a 9 hour marathon LMC held at Edmonton Max as labour relations at the institution have been on a steady decline, with the morale of our members deteriorating, and concerns for their health and safety rising; all stemming as a result of management’s decisions to impose what we believe as a new way of doing business - Which is to simply stop consulting and honouring agreements made with the union. >>>
At the April Regional Labour-Management Consultation, the Regional Executive met the new Regional Deputy Commissioner of CSC in the Prairies. Regional President Grabowsky welcomed the Regional Deputy Commissioner in her new functions and expressed the hope to maintain good labour relations in our region. Only time will tell, of course, but for now, the RDC committed to have a lot of answers for us at the next RLMC.
The Regional Labour Management Committee was held March 27, 2009 at Regional Headquarters in Saskatoon, and it was attended by the Regional Executive. The employer opened by announcing management changes in the region and changes to the overtime monitoring process at RHQ and NHQ.
