Media advisory: OPSEU/SEFPO Local 467 Correctional Officers hold information rally to fight union-busting by bosses


Napanee – Following years of reprisals by bosses against members of OPSEU/SEFPO Local 467 for their union activity, Local 467 is holding an information rally outside the Quinte Detention Centre on Monday.

Monday, November 21

6 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Quinte Detention Centre
89 Richmond Blvd,
Napanee, ON K7R 3S1

Examples of reprisals by the employer include 69 days of suspension against one member since they became active in the union four years ago. Before becoming active in the union, this member had no discipline on file.

At the information rally, OPSEU/SEFPO Local 467 will make it clear to their members that they have a right to be active in the union without discrimination or harassment from the employer. They will also send a message to the employer that OPSEU/SEFPO members fully stand behind the Local Executive Committee against suspensions under false allegations.
