    Inmates to do school paint jobs - By Ryan J. Halliday, Daily News Transcript, MA
    As a cost-savings measure, the School Department will use jail inmates and independent contractors and leave two custodial positions vacant.

    The School Committee earlier this month voted unanimously to adopt a memorandum of agreement with the custodian's union, the AFL-CIO, Council 93, not to fill the painter and electrician positions in the Maintenance Department.

    Major school painting projects will be performed by jail inmates from the Norfolk County Sheriff Community Service Program, while outside independent contractors will perform electrical work in School Department buildings, according to the terms of the agreement.
