Jail guards rally at Queen's Park

Uniformed jail guards rallied at Queen’ Park on Monday in support of their colleagues at the Hamilton-Wentworth Detention Centre.

More than 200 officers at the steeltown centre have been involved in a 13-day-long dispute with management over proposed safety and disciplinary measures.

The officers are trying to force a meeting with community safety and correctional services minister Madeleine Meilleur to resolve the situation.

They already have meetings scheduled for Monday with Conservative and NDP opposition critics.
