WCAX Story Outrages VSEA Corrections Members

August 19, 2019

VSEA Corrections members are fired up after WCAX aired a story that featured DOC Commissioner Mike Touchette telling the reporter that staffing is not an issue in Vermont prisons.

Say what?

VSEA Corrections members have delivered countless hours of testimony in the past few years to lawmakers and committees about chronic understaffing, mandatory overtime and temp usage–with press in the room. And President Bellini, a Corrections member himself, has penned commentaries on the topics. 

WCAX’s story is unfortunate and misleading and VSEA members are questioning the motivation behind WCAX airing the story(?).

VSEA will be responding to this light-on-facts story.
