No cuts to guard positions despite Nanaimo council decision - BCGEU

There have been no cuts to the ranks of Nanaimo’s prison guards as the City of Nanaimo drafts a resolution.

Nanaimo city council decided to eliminate four prison guard positions last October in the wake of a core review, ending a more than decade-long practice of separate guards for male and female prisoners. The decision, however, hasn’t been implemented.
