Prison officers ordered back to work after snap strike

According to this article, Australian prison officers went on strike to protest proposed budget reductions.  I am not certain how this works.  Do they simply lock down the inmates in their cells?  I assume (or hope!) a skeleton crew of staff remain to feed the inmates, respond to medical emergencies, etc.

    In Canada, certain employees are designated essential service and they along with non-union managers go in to keep things running during a strike.

  2. Thanks for the insight, Joanne!
