UPEA Committeed to Support the Establishment of a DOC Career Ladder

The Utah Public Employees’ Association (UPEA) supports the Governor’s proposal to create a career ladder for Correctional Officers in the Department of Corrections. The budget request of $5,854,200 dollars put forth by the Governor’s office to address compensation for certified officer’s within the Department of Corrections.  

 The proposed career ladder is estimated to impact over 1,300 DOC employees the first year it’s implemented.

 UPEA staff will be meeting with legislators throughout the legislative session to advocate the creation of the career ladder.  

Please call UPEA Field Services Manager Christy Cushing at 801-264-8732 ext. 218 or email christy@upea.net if you have any specific questions.
