Default Prison guards union launches TV attack on Schwarzenegger reforms

Prison guards union launches TV attack on Schwarzenegger reforms
Associated Press

SACRAMENTO - The state prison guards union unleashed a television attack against Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Monday, harshly criticizing the governor's prison-reform plans.

The union's action was notable because top Schwarzenegger administration officials have been trying to work with the union leadership on prison issues since the start of the year. The cooperation was widely seen as an attempt to keep the union and its campaign warchest on the sidelines as the governor seeks re-election.

What appeared to be a warming relationship between the governor's office and the 30,000-member union is believed to have prompted two corrections secretaries to resign in quick succession earlier this year. It also led to a fierce rebuke from a special master overseeing reforms within the troubled prison system.

Interesting development from an organization that that just a few days ago said "We have to weigh our options.We have an endorsement process, and we are going to absolutely follow that process, and we'll see what that process bears out.....It's premature to say what we're going to do," in declining to make an announcement as to which gubernatorial candidate the CCPOA would be endorsing.
