Santa Clara CPOA Files Unfair Labor Practice Charge Against Sheriff’s Department

CPOA Cites 12 different examples of unfair labor practices taken by the Sheriff’ Department

San Jose (November 14th, 2017) – The Santa Clara CPOA filed an unfair labor practice charge with Public Employment Relations Board (PERB) yesterday evening. The Santa Clara CPOA filed in order to stop unilateral changes in the jails that have put inmates and staff at risk. This comes after over a year of meetings with the sheriff's administration in an attempt at cooperation by the Santa Clara CPOA. Furthermore, the Santa Clara CPOA is asking for injunctive relief, which means PERB would seek judicial intervention to put a hold on these changes and fast track the case.

“It’s unfortunate that it had to come to this,” said Santa Clara CPOA President Amy Le. “The CPOA made many attempts to work with the Department, but the jails have gotten so dangerous we had to take action.”

 “We support the reforms in the jail; however, they have to ensure the safety of staff and inmates while these changes are being made. And that is not happening currently.”

Enhancing teachers’ response to active threats

Enhancing teachers’ response to active threats
When you say the words “first responders” who comes to mind? Police, Fireman, EMT? But what about teachers? It is no longer adequate to place all of the responsibility for our children’s safety in the hands of our teachers during an attack and not take the time to properly train them to accomplish that task. Nor is it acceptable to simply tell them, "Lock your classroom door, turn out the lights, hide in a corner and pray that the attacker doesn’...
