see 3647 and 3648. The latter is particularly interesting in that they state only "profesional" corrections officers are welcome, and that automatically excludes private corrections officers. That sort of demented logic is evident in their postings on this thread. They are no more than anti-privatization goons, trying to protect their lives on the public teat. As a taxpayer, I'm pissed that the organization even exists. Go away.
The real battle of privatization v. public management deserves to be fought in the market place. As soon as I see public facility wardens getting laid off for incompetence, or union guys subject to merit pay, I'll know that public facilities can compete with private ones.
P.S. CUSA isn't a union. They are a lobbying organization that seems to exist solely to fight privatization in every venue and by any dirty tactic they can come with. Fine, guys, do it, but not on this message board.
