“The VSEA Board of Trustees supports and stands by its members working in the Department of Corrections and the people they serve. We value the expert work they perform in the most demanding and challenging of settings and will continue to advocate on their behalf to immediately address:

1) Chronic understaffing

2) Mandatory overtime and double shifts

3) Inconsistent policies/standards among facilities and field offices

4) Recruitment and retention issues

5) Unsafe working conditions

All state employees deserve safe working conditions, to protect them and those that they serve.

Our union, the VSEA, stands with you.”
