Local 1000 engaging to mitigate impacts of CCC closure


The California Correctional Center (CCC) is scheduled to close after a Lassen County judge dismissed a lawsuit on September 8, seeking to stop the prison closure. CDCR has not published a timeline, although the Enacted 2022-2023 State budget sets a June 30, 2023 closure date.

Local 1000 is fully engaged to assist the impacted employees we represent. We reached out to department management upon learning of the judge’s ruling.

As of this writing, CDCR has not finalized their plans for the closure. The pending lawsuit precluded the department from engaging in any activity related to the closure.

In an effort to begin this important conversation as early as possible, Local 1000’s Contract department has already engaged in discussions with CDCR management, and agreed to schedule “meet and confer” events to discuss timelines, impacts, and mitigation strategies.

“We are seeking innovative solutions to reduce the impact felt by the workers we represent and their families in Susanville,” said Irene Green, Local 1000 Vice President for Bargaining.

Local 1000 will communicate news and progress as it becomes available—via email, as well as posting to this page.

We know that this is a difficult process for everyone impacted, and it’s critical that we continue to ensure access to correct information on a timely basis. You can submit questions or concerns about the closure to CCCclosure@seiu1000.org
