Sheriffs Walk Off the Job at Lethbridge Courthouse as Part of Province Wide Protest

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: The wildcat strike that's seen correctional workers walk off the job in Edmonton, Calgary and the Lethbridge jail now includes sheriffs from the Lethbridge courthouse.

 

It comes after an employee at the new Edmonton Remand Centre was suspended last week for complaining about safety issues.

 

Local Correctional Service Worker and Chapter Six Chair Amanda McMurren went over the message they're hoping to send, "We all want to be safe in our jobs and we want the public support in that. We all work in a very dangerous environment and with the new NERC (New Edmonton Remand Centre) opening there's a lot of deficiencies there, and they do need to be addressed and the government needs to cooperate with the union so we can sit down, have a conversation with them so those issues can be resolved."

 

When asked if there are any concerns that local correctional workers would like to see addressed at the Lethbridge jail, McMurren opted for a short response , "There are issues, but I will not bring those to light because the main focus right now is for NERC."

 

Security for the Lethbridge courthouse is currently being covered by the RCMP, commissionaires, Fish and Wildlife officers and a couple of sheriffs.
