AFSCME Asks Judge To Block Inmate Transfers; Says Quinn Administration Is Adding To Dangers In Prison System


AFSCME is going to court in an effort to stop the Quinn administration from transferring more inmates out of prisons that are being targeted for closure. 

 

The union is seeking an injunction that would block further inmate transfers until a union grievance can be heard.  AFSCME says the transfers are adding to dangerous overcrowding in other prisons… putting staff and other inmates at risk. 

 

A court hearing on the union’s injunction request is set for Wednesday morning in Alexander County Circuit Court.
