The intent to fire thousands of prison guards is very bad news for CCPOA, and the organization is fighting back. However, it seems that the fight, while enthusiastic, is a bit premature.
The judge's response (attached verbatim in Chuck Alexander's memo on the CCPOA website) is that ". . . your layoff notification must provide a specific date of layoff to be effective and confer the appropriate appeal rights".
It seems that many of the proposed measures for cuts in CDCR budget have not yet come to fruition, and we are all collectively waiting for the other shoe to drop.
