Update as of May 1, 2024


Our Union wanted to provide some clarifying information regarding the VTP for impacted employees at CDCR. The VTP packets provided by the department to employees only provide viable vacancies in four counties in Southern California. With that in mind, the department made statements to our Union that they are willing to work with employees if employees are interested in participating in VTP in other counties in the state on a case-by-case basis. 

We are aware that the department made conflicting statements during some of their informational sessions, informing employees that there are no other VTP opportunities outside of the counties already listed in the VTP packets. Our Union has been in contact with Labor Relations at CDCR and has verified that the statements made by CDCR management at those informational sessions are incorrect and that the department is indeed willing to work with employees to seek viable positions statewide. 

If you are interested in utilizing the VTP to get to a position at an institution outside of the counties already listed, we recommend reaching out to the SSRO team at CDCRHRSSROHelpDesk@cdcr.ca.gov and informing our Union team that you have made this request of the department so that we are able to follow up and make sure you are getting the assistance you need. 

Our Union team can be reached for clarity on this and other closure-related issues at cvspclosure@seiu1000.org

We continue to encourage you to check the website regularly for updates. To ensure you never miss an update, contact our Member Resource Center (MRC) at 866.471.SEIU (7348) and make sure they have your current contact information.
