Massachusetts ready to fire/force resign half of it’s state level Correctional Officers.

BOSTON (CBS) – Getting a prison under control requires the kind of training that correction officers say National Guard personnel do not have.

Kevin Flanagan, the legislative liaison for the Massachusetts Correction Officers Federated Union tells WBZ-TV’s I-Team, “with all due respect to the men and women of the National Guard, we have highly trained correction officers who have worked throughout the pandemic for 18 months and to now say 50 percent would be terminated it’s not right, it’s not fair.”

On Tuesday, anticipating a number of correction officers would fail to meet the October 17 deadline for mandatory vaccination, Governor Charlie Baker activated 250 troops to help staff potential shortages at state prisons.
