Dripping from the rain but in high spirits, busloads of Correctional Officers from all over Southern Ontario came to Queens Park Monday Aug. 28 to demonstrate their solidarity with the struggle of workers at Hamilton Wentworth Detention Centre (HWDC). Led by President Warren (Smokey) Thomas and Dan Sidsworth, Chair of the Corrections Division, a large delegation lined up to attend the first day of the legislature and drive home the point to the government that their members must not be penalized for insisting on proper health and safety procedures in their workplaces.

This issue is still not resolved as management has broken off negotiations. In response, the union has withdrawn from all joint committees (except Health and Safety). Dan Sidsworth, Chair of the Correction MERC has formally indicated this in a letter to management.
