‘Big win’ for Corrections members

Global TV is reporting on OPSEU’s victory forcing the government to provide surgical masks to all corrections workers and jail visitors.

“It’s a big win and a big relief,” OPSEU Corrections chair Chris Jackel told Global.

“This was a long struggle, but I’m proud to say that our members and our union never gave up,” said OPSEU President Warren (Smokey) Thomas in a media release. “Now, everybody is safer from COVID-19.”
