The Vermont Department of Corrections announced that security staff at Vermont’s six correctional facilities will move from 8-hour to 12-hour shifts

As part of a plan to stabilize facility staffing levels,  and improve the quality of life for staff on the frontlines, the Vermont Department of Corrections announced that security staff at Vermont’s six correctional facilities will move from 8-hour to 12-hour shifts, and the state will conduct an analysis of corrections security staff pay. Twelve-hour shifts are currently in place on an emergency basis at Correctional facilities in St. Johnsbury and in Springfield. The schedule change will take effect at the remaining four facilities on August 28, of this year. Staff will be on a five days on/two days off schedule to start, with the ultimate goal of moving to a biweekly schedule that allows for seven days off during a 14-day pay period.
