The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) notified the Association of California State Supervisors (ACSS) of its intent to modify the existing policy and procedures to the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) effective June 1, 2015. The modifications includes changes to the DOM as well as several new and revised CDCR Forms. Click here to view a copy of the notice to ACSS. All CDCR DAI staff will receive training on the updated PREA policy and procedures. This will also impact CCHCS staff. The proposed modifications may impact your working conditions.
To preserve your rights and address the concerns of our members, ACSS requested a meet and confer with CDCR and CCHCS. Under the Bill of Rights for State Excluded Employees Government Code Section 3533 a “Meet and Confer” means that the state employer shall consider as fully as it deems reasonable, such presentations as are made by ACSS - the verified supervisory employee organization - on behalf of its supervisory members prior to arriving at a determination of policy or course of action.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the PREA modifications that you would like ACSS to address, please contact Nellie Lynn, ACSS Assistant Director of Representation via email at nlynn@ACSS.org by May 8, 2015. Your thoughts and input regarding these proposed modifications are important to ensure that the concerns of all impacted members are addressed.
