Read the CCPOA tentative contract and summary

PRISON-officer-0275.JPGThe Department of Human Resources has released a summary of its tentative contract with the California Correctional Peace Officers Association and the agreement in full.

You can read our weekend report on the dealhere. We've embedded the documents below.

The state's accounting of the two-year agreement doesn't include the contract's estimated costs. which includes significant changes to the way overtime is calculated and shortens correctional officers' academy training.

Look for the Legislative Analyst's Office to do that within the next week or so. The LAO has 10 days from when it receives official documentation of the agreement to turn around a cost estimate for the Legislature.
