The following updates from the convention are via CCPOA San Quentin and TheRevolution IsHere :
--Wave 4 of layoffs has been postponed due to staff shortages... They (CDCR) are hiring Parole Agents back because they didn't GUESS the number of inmates and parolees correctly.
More to follow ... No news on POFF YET
--Lateral transfers on hold as of now. The transfers have to do with the amount of vacancies in the institution
There's over 1,000 vacancies throughout the state. They are looking to hire about 2,720 c/os, so maybe when that happens they will open up transfers.
--Donning and Doffing update: August 13, 2013, will start the 1st phase of trial.
--CDCR is looking to transfer another 150 Officers to the CHFC in August. We are not sure if the old transfer packet will be used.
It's our position new packets be submitted!
