Prison guard overtime up as positions go unfilled - JSOnline

Overtime for prison guards was up sharply last fiscal year and is up slightly again this year despite changes in overtime rules resulting from the repeal of most public union bargaining. A state Department of Corrections spokeswoman said that for the fiscal year that started in July, the new law and policies have been trumped by other factors like a big jump in vacant positions. …. Marty Beil, executive director of the Wisconsin State Employees Union, said the higher overtime reflects the fact that the administration has lost corrections officers and still not replaced them. "That means that there's going to be overtime. Unless they want to jeopardize the safety of the officers, they can't work short-shifted," Beil said.
