State Doctors Weigh In on”Lift and Shift”

January 18, 2017
The Governor’s Proposed Budget for the fiscal year 2017-2018 contains language to have the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and the California Correctional Health Care System assume responsibility for psychiatric programs now run under the auspices of the Department of State Hospitals (DSH-Salinas Valley, DSH-Stockton, and DSH-Vacaville).  The potential transfer is being called “lift and shift” for short.
 
Since the announcement of the “lift and shift”, DSH-Stockton has lost at several psychiatrists.   The department continues to notice the union as new details of the transfer become available.  The UAPD has sent a survey to impacted employees at both CDCR and DSH for feedback on the announcement. A Meet and Confer will be scheduled with both departments to discuss Bargaining Unit 16 (BU16) impact concerns.

UAPD to State: No Deal

December 23, 2016

After two days of intense negotiations, the UAPD Bargaining Team must report that no deal has been reached with the State of California.  The offer put forward by the State did not adequately address the serious issues raised by our doctors, including high vacancy rates and dangerous understaffing in many facilities.  We have heard from members all across the State that we should settle for nothing less than a fair contract, and that’s what we plan to do.  We will return to the table in January, and continue preparations for taking collective action if necessary
