Prison labour at Fiona Stanley?
Mr Redman told Paul Murray earlier that he had no problem with the use of prison labour in the community, including the new Fiona Stanley Hospital that is 200 meters away from the Hospital.
A Serco press release, delivered to 6PR, denyed that prisoners will be used at Fiona Stanley nor had they been considered to be used there.
The Corrective Services Minister at a press conference on the steps of Parliament House back flipped on comments made to 6PR earlier that he was happy with prisoners to be used at Fiona Stanley Hospital.
The Minister stated clearly that no prison labour would be used at the new public hospital. A clear departure from the statements made to Paul Murray on the Morning program.
United Voice Assistant Secretary, Carolyn Smith, says they had heard rumours of the move to use prisoners to replace workers at Fiona Stanley Hospital who they represent but couldn't confirm it until told by 6PR.
John Welsh from the Prison Officers Union says that the use of prisoners with violent behaviour records and charges for unsupervised community work is a bad idea, especially when they are being used inside a hospital.
To P Ralph you are quite correct, don't they also have to obtain a working with children check as well, mabey SERCO and Collin Barnett don't care about these things but the public of WA certainly doDr WHO Tuesday 27 March, 2012 - 12:13 PM
I listened to the press release from Serco and I agree with you Paul that probably wont use prisoners at Fiona Stanley NOW but I have no doubt they were going to. The other issue is that there has been nothing as far as community consultation about the Rangeview facility containing prisoners with violent convictions or records. In fact we were promised that there would be minimal risk prisoners. Who the hell can we trust here? I voted for these idiots but never again.Dylan Tuesday 27 March, 2012 - 10:46 AM
How do existing inmates of the prison system acquire a Police Clearance to work in the Fiona Stanley Hospital. Honest citizens must apply for a Police Clearance at considerable cost before they are able to be employed.P Ralph Tuesday 27 March, 2012 - 10:05 AM
