News News Community corrections officers walk off the job
About 120 community correction officers from around the metropolitan area have decided to take industrial action over working conditions.

Officers will stop work until Friday morning when they will discuss whether any further action should be taken.

The Community and Public Sector Union says officers are concerned they are working excessive hours and are calling for their workloads to be reduced.

The union's Toni Walkington is hoping to meet representatives from the Department of Corrective Services tomorrow to try to resolve the dispute.

"The action that the workers are looking for from their employer is a way of reducing their workload so that they're not having to work in excess of their ordinary hours of work. That they're not working in excess of say 50 hours a week," she said.
