Transportation of Prisoners - Update - Action to Continue

01 July 2016

After numerous meetings at the Industrial Relations Commission (IRC) and with DCS management, the IRC issued recommendations that included the Department writing to the PSA about key aspects of the Transportation of Prisoners.

The PSA will be meeting with our legal team and the Worksite Representatives who have been present at the IRC meetings to consider the information that has now been forwarded by the Department.

This meeting will take place on Monday 4 July. Further PSA briefs will be sent to members early next week. In the meantime the bans continue.

The ongoing work bans regarding the transportation and admission of prisoners prior to 0830 and after 1800 remain in place.”
