OPSEU To Hold Rallies At Northern Jails Today

All nine Northern Ontario Correctional facilities are holding information rallies today.

They feel their employer is prematurely preparing for a strike.

OPSEU spokesperson Mike Lundy says they've seen their employer start building strike shacks for managers to live in, in the event of a labour disruption.

Lundy says it's dumb founding and they want to spread the word that this is happening at Northern facilities.

Locally, OPSEU will be holding a rally at the old Tourist Information site beside the Kenora Jail at 11:30 this morning followed by a charity barbeque.
