Statewide CDCR CCHCS Health & Safety Grievance
SEIU Local 1000 filed a health and safety grievance on behalf of all members in CDCR/CCHCS due to the department’s violation of our contract.

On July 28, 2020 SEIU Local 1000 filed a health and safety grievance on behalf of all members in CDCR/CCHCS due to the department’s violation of our contract.

CDCR CCHCS violated our contract by requiring employees to work where an immediate and recognizable threat exists to their health and safety. The department also continues to expose our members to an unsafe work environment, resulting in COVID-19 outbreaks, by continuing to allow inmate movement and not fully enforcing all health and safety guidelines.
