AFSCME Council 18

Take ACTION for NM Corrections Officers Today - Public Safety Congress, Sept 2015 in ABQ

 



SAVE New Mexico Corrections!

take action



New Mexico's State Corrections system is teetering on the edge of crisis. Corrections employees need decisive action NOW from the Governor and Legislature to foster a safer, well-run system. It's mission critical for our state government.

Please sign a letter in support of the men and women who dedicate themselves to one of our country's toughest careers.

Corrections Officers have one of the toughest jobs out there, and scientific studies back up that fact.

The NM Corrections system currently languishes under severe vacancy levels, with several facilities operating with 40% vacancy rates. A result, Corrections Officers are working maximum level (72) hours of mandatory overtime, weekly, at some facilities. This work schedule prevents officers from having adequate time for recovery, self care, or their families.

Resulting fatigue, stress, and break-down of well-being, commonly referred to as “corrections fatigue” is a major factor increasing the dangers of accidents or incidents at work.  Please CLICK to sign the letter now
