The Department of Personnel Administration has just posted the tentative memorandum of understanding with the California Correctional Peace Officers Association.
The PacoVilla.com Corrections blog posted a draft of the agreement earlier this week, but we're told by DPA spokeswoman Lynelle Jolley that the 208-page document released today is complete. One example: The DPA document includes a side letter about a field officer training program, whereas the earlier draft says the parties will meet within 90 days to hammer out a program.
The administration usually publishes a summary of labor agreements that include cost estimates. DPA hasn't done that with the Unit 6 contract because, we hear, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and the Department of Finance are still hammering out the final estimates. Those numbers should post soon.
Then the contract will go to the Legislative Analyst's Office for review. The LAO has 10 days to issue a report on what it believes the contract will cost or save the state.
