Correctional Officers plan to hold an emergency general meeting Wednesday to discuss the way forward regarding several unresolved work-related issues.

They include staffing and equipment concerns.

The Saint Lucia Correctional Services Welfare Association summoned the meeting for 10.00 am at the Dennery Infant School.

Association Public Relations Officer Yasmin Peter told St Lucia Times that the organisation also wants to give its members new information.

She explained that Correctional Officers are committed to their country’s national security, especially in light of the current crime situation.

But the association official said the officers appear to be a ‘forgotten’ set of individuals.

“We have always been forgotten. When you hear of essential services, you don’t hear of Correctional Officers. You hear about the fire service and the police,” Peter told St Lucia Times.

She explained that the officers’ patience was wearing thin over issues that have been outstanding for more than a year.

“We have not moved anywhere. Nothing has happened. We have been more than patient. We have asked our members to be patient, so we have now decided to have a further dialogue to see what their mandate will be,” Peter told St Lucia Times.

And Peter said the general membership of the Correctional Services Welfare Association would decide the way forward at Wednesday’s emergency meeting.
