Re: Ontario Correctional Services

Does anyone have any idea what the retention rate is for Correction Officers in the province or in specific cities? For those that have been CO's for a long time, does it seem like a revolving door where you'll see lots of new recruits come in but only a hand-full are able cope without resigning du...

Re: Ontario Correctional Services

Causal don’t get escorts anyways, Really...? You must work in backwards world... Lol In my world escorts are almost exclusively a casual's gig. Especially the hospital duty kind.

Re: Ontario Correctional Services

With the new causal officers coming in. They have to keep their use of force updated at all times with the contact. If it expires, contract doesn’t have to be renewed. https://i.imgur.com/Fxk7Q3X.gif In 30 years I've seen ONE contract not renewed... It wasn't because some BS training had expired It...

Re: Ontario Correctional Services

No accountability the reason for the lack of compliance with keeping officers updated on their Use of Force. In this regard we're often the ones (somewhat)responsible for not being up to date... I know very few who look forward to training days... Myself included. I'll admit I avoid them. I don't p...

Re: Ontario Correctional Services

Side note: What is the deal with Provincial (specifically Ontario) not wearing their body armor while on shift unless they're on an escort? that one is mind blowing to me. Because we don't want to . Vests are worn under certain circumstances of course, but not as regular piece of uniform. As for fi...

Re: Ontario Correctional Services

Hello, I have completed all the necessary stages in the recruitment process and I know that employment isn’t guaranteed but I was wondering how the hours were at Ontario Correctional Institute (Brampton) and Toronto South. Any guidance is appreciated, thanks. I'll bet OCI isn't going to reopen at a...

Re: Ontario Correctional Services

CSN efforts are dead. No new union. A lot of very senior cos dont want to jeopardize their pensions. They would've been great for cos with less than 20 years in but oh well COs have spoken. They'll try again in 4 years Pension wasn't the only issue... Bottom line is whatever CSN was "saying" they c...

Ps: here is a RED PEN for you so you can make correction like a white shirt. I'm going to need two... Your punctuation and sentence structure are indicative of ESL (English as a second language).

Re: Ontario Correctional Services

What are you talking about by saying I am assuming Ministry cares? I don’t even work with ON CO, why do I assume? I simply try to say it will be more cost efficient if they do that way and I know that would not happen. It is a simple FYI thing with comparison with other jurisdictions. And you inter...

Re: Ontario Correctional Services

The management should work on increase staff benefit so they can retain staff member. Otherwise, they will just waste their budget: spend money for recruit people, train them, lose them, then repeat the whole cycle, recruiting-train-lose them over and over. You're assuming the ministry cares... Cut...

OPSEU should really fight for new recruits benefit. But it is a mission impossible to them.
