|TDCJ's top 6 unit locations for severe staffing issues|
By Tonya Peters, Backgate Website
Talk around the water coolers, the tun-out rooms and down the halls have all been pointed towards mandatory overtime lately. Severe staffing shortages all over Texas that are only getting worse, and an agency that has been publicly flogged by Legislators and the like for their treatment of staff, corruption woes, and employee safety issues can't seem to attract employees who make it longer then 6 months on the job.
Region III employees are being sent down to work at the McConnell unit in Beeville once a week in what are called second hand, no road worthy state issued vans. Sometimes working 18 hour days including drive time. Is there a better way ? Is it safe for employees ? Add you comments below.
