Correctional Workers Stage Protest at CCPOA Headquarters

State correctional officers are staging a small protest at CCPOA's West Sacramento headquarters, calling for the union's executive council to step down over a series of legal and leadership miscues that the protesters say reveal ethical and possibly legal lapses among their leaders.

Looks like the prison guards are tired of their own leadership. No doubt that Mike Jimenez thought that he could weild the whip like his predecessors. Unfortunately, he is no Don Novey and the officers are fed up with the tactics their union is taking and they want to get rid of the current leadership.

This is a good lesson learned and a clear message for other union leaders to make sure they are listening to their constituency or they may find themselves in the same boat.
