Topic: The Club House / Do you belong to a Union?

I too belong to OCSEA and was my local chapters Chief Steward at one time. Unfortunately, I found myself working on cases that did not need attention due to the Officers own ignorance. The majority of grievances on Officers that just need to mature a bit and do their jobs. However, I have had cases were Officers were on the wrong end of a vindictive supervisors mean streak. Those were the most fullfilling wins. All in all, a union is only as good as its membership. Not the leadership, the membership. You have the right to question your union officials and all that they do. Just because they are voted president does not give them the right run around like the almighty and pass judgement.

Topic: Security Central / Dew rags

I work as a Correctional Officer at a medium security prison in Ohio. When I first started here dew rags (skull caps) were being sold in the commissary in black only and allowed in the housing area and on the yard only. A few years ago the Major lifted this restriction to all areas except for work, cafe, education and trips. I have yet to here of any inmate utilyzing this as a contraband source or a gang identifyer. I am not saying it has’nt happened, just has not been recorded.
