ACSS for many years has advocated on behalf of CDCR supervising nurses for a fair policy for shift assignments for Supervisory Registered Nurses (Level II) of the California Correctional Health Care Services (CCHCS). We are happy to announce that a CCHCS policy for shift assignments based on seniority is soon to be a reality.
This new policy would benefit SRN II positions to finally be able to choose shifts based on their seniority level, as opposed to the current policy of shift selection based on vacancy, assigned placement, or operational need.
ACSS will continue to work diligently with CCHCS through the meet and confer process on this issue as the draft is being finalized. Stay tuned for additional updates.
