California prison guards approve one-year contract with a 5 percent raise The mission of CCPOA is to fight in behalf of our members for the enhancement of wages and benefits, as well as the provision of a positive work environment. While in California there are many challenges to corrections, including the possibility of private prisons, the continued overcrowding of our existing prisons, the increase in the number of violent prisoners – especially in youth institutions – and the need to improve professional life through education and training, we face them with the challenge of maintaining our membership. Each member of our management team is responsible for prison and is elected by membership. As a result, CCPOA leaders have a personal understanding of the problems of prison officers and a strong commitment to the profession, which can only come from the “walk of the line” behind the walls of the California prison. This collective knowledge and experience is a big part of what makes CCPOA one of the most effective personnel organizations in the state.
In the years following the signing of our first contract in 1982, the CCPOA has made great strides and a remarkable job for our membership. We are constantly expanding our knowledge, training and experience to provide our members with the best representation. We will continue to address the critical issues facing the correction industry today and are ready to meet any challenges that may arise in the future.
