Ontario Public Service - Correctional Bargaining Unit

The Correctional Bargaining Unit is comprised of two Ministries, The Ministry of the Solicitor General (Corrections) and the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services, (Youth Justice). Both Corrections and Youth Justice have a MERC team. Our bargaining unit is comprised of some 9000 members, including correctional officers, youth services officers, probation officers, probation and parole officers, nurses, social workers, rehabilitation officers, volunteer coordinators, cooks, chaplains, recreation officers, trade workers, administrative assistants among others. Corrections supervises adults in 25 Correctional facilities and 119 Probation Offices. Youth Justice supervises youth in 5 Youth Centres and in 64 Probation Offices. Corrections workers joined OPSEU/SEFPO in 1968 when the Province took over county jails.
