News on the “Pay Cuts” case

People have been asking what happened with the Federal Court application for judicial review regarding the Correctional Service of Canada decision, in October, 2013 to “increase offender accountability” by effectively their pay by 22% and eliminating pay for those who worked in CORCAN (prison industries).

The short answer is that the hearing on the matter will take place on February 6-8, 2017 in Montreal at the Palais de Justice.

Delays have occurred because of various motions and the compiling of voluminous documents by the Department of Justice (the Attorney General) and the five other lawyers representing prisoners.

I must say that I had hoped that the government would intervene to correct these very unjust measures since last October, but no news yet on that front.
