CCHCS layoffs: what you need to know
California Correctional Health Care Services (CCHCS) has mailed more than 600 State Restriction of Appointment (SROA) letters to Local 1000 members in seven of our nine bargaining units in anticipation of just over 200 planned layoffs scheduled to occur on December 1, 2015.
The majority of the layoffs affect bargaining units 17 and 20; the other affected bargaining units are 1, 3, 4, 11, and 15.
Local 1000 will meet with management at CCHCS in the coming month to negotiate over the impacts of the planned layoffs. We will report our progress on this web page – please check back for updates.
A series of town halls have been scheduled by CCHCS to allow recipients of the SROA letters to meet with department representatives to learn more about the layoff process.
