Today, the NTPS Correctional Officers enterprise agreement was approved by a majority of employees who voted in the ballot process.
Today is a significant day for our Correctional Officer members as this enterprise was not about money but their safety and the safety of the prisoners and the community.
Our Correctional Officers stood united and sent a strong message to the Government that their safety would not be negotiated and was a priority claim in these enterprise agreement negotiations.
After over 2 years of a united stance involving historical walk offs, the Government finally listened to our members and delivered.
As a strong union our members can now focus on holding Corrections and the Government accountable to their commitments.
