Federal correctional officers demand government keep its word on vital safety issue

OTTAWA, Sept. 26, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ – Correctional officers meeting in Ottawa this week will on Wednesday call on the Conservative government to fulfil a five-year-old commitment to pass a law to address the growing threat of infectious and contagious disease in Canada’s increasingly crowded penitentiaries.

Ottawa-based Journalists are invited to a media availability at 12 noon, September 28, at the corner of Bank and Sparks streets, the site of several public information display booths that members of the Union of Canadian Correctional Officers (UCCO-SACC-CSN) will be hosting in Ottawa and Gatineau.

The union’s national president, Pierre Mallette, will be on hand to help launch a petition campaign in favour of a Blood Samples Act, in order to guarantee that officers and other emergency responders will have accurate health information in the event they are exposed to an inmate’s bodily fluids. As it stands, Correctional Service Canada denies information about an inmate’s health status to victims of attacks with bodily fluids, a frequently employed method of intimidation in Canada’s penitentiaries.

Wednesday’s activity is a part of the plans for the union’s “Mid-Mandate Meeting,” attended by union representatives from each of Canada’s 54 federal penitentiaries. On Tuesday and Thursday, downtown Ottawa will also see a union presence, wrapping up with a rally on Parliament Hill.
