Improvements to Manitoba corrections system needed says CSC report

MGEU/NUPGE looking to review recommendations made about the province's correctional system.

Winnipeg (06 May 2013) – Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) has completed a procedural review of the Manitoba correctional system. The review follows incidents involving inmate assaults last summer. The province asked CSC to complete the review, not about the incidents themselves, but about the procedures within the system which may have contributed to the incidents.

Recommendations made

The finished report and its recommendations were shared with senior management, who then developed their own document from the findings. Some of these recommendations were system-wide, while others were intended to address issues specifically at the Winnipeg Remand Centre (WRC).

In a recent health and safety committee meeting, management reviewed some of these recommendations with the Manitoba Government and General Employees' Union (MGEU/NUPGE) representatives.

Union has requested report

MGEU/NUPGE has requested access to the CSC report and its findings. To date access has not been granted.

The Province did share their own following recommendations for the WRC as well as the three province-wide recommendations for Manitoba’s corrections system.
