The fatties in the Corrections Union have lost their bid to remain fat bastards and not do fitness assessments.
The prison union has lost its battle about the introduction of fitness tests for guards after arguing they should be paid for their troubles.
Last year the Department of Corrections announced it would introduce a Physical Readiness Assessment (PRA) for its staff to ensure they were able to respond to emergencies.
The six-step test would grade each employee either green, amber or red.
Amber employees would be able to repeat the test in a fortnight and if still graded amber would be provided with support and re-tested in a year.
Red employees would have to submit to further medical and safety assessments to determine if they could remain in their roles or have their duties changed.
It could also result in an employee having to take either paid or unpaid sick leave until they improved their fitness levels.
