Michigan Department of Corrections hears union complaints about private firm

LANSING (WKZO) -- The union leader of the state's corrections officers is alleging employees with a private firm hired to take over the food services in prisons are weakening security.

In a letter to the Michigan Department of Corrections, Tom Tylutki  said an employee of Aramark Correctional Services was caught having sex with an inmate at the Jackson State Prison, and there are a number of contraband issues.  He claims the "untrained" workers are allowing prisoners to handle knives and placing other staff members and prisoners in danger.

The MDOC is looking the allegations while Aramark officials have not commented on the allegations.
