Mobilong Prison - Dispute Prisoner Suitability

17 February 2017

After extensive negotiations in the SA Industrial Relations Commission agreement has been reached on the assessment for suitability for prisoners transferred to Mobilong Prison.

The agreement includes a number of measures which are intended to minimise the transfer of prisoners who are not suitable for the structured working day and open campus environment at Mobilong Prison.

On the basis of the agreed measures the PSA will recommend to its members to lift all industrial bans.

The PSA thanks all members across all prison sites for their participation in the industrial bans.

Mobilong members in particular wish to thank their colleagues at the other prison sites for their support.

By standing together an acceptable outcome has been reached.
