For improved Allowances

Our allowance demands

Correctional officer allowance of $1750:

• Doubles to $3500 after 3 years to recognize seniority

• Continues our efforts to maintain comparability with the RCMP
• Recognizes the unique nature of our jobs

Retention and Recruitment allowance (Grande Cache and Port-Cartier):

• $2400 – single
• $3600 – family

• To offset the high cost of living in remote areas
• Create incentive to stay at these sites.

Specific allowances:

• Clothing + $200 for max $800
• Instructor +.25

These allowances recognize our different responsibilities, our qualifications and our professionalism in our institutions.
