Deadlock on Prison Contract Dispute

Aramark will continue to serve food at Michigan's prisons, despite a challenge from two unions.

They were appealing an earlier state decision to privatize food services to the Michigan Civil Service Commission, arguing that privatizing has hurt quality and safety. The commission is deadlocked on the issue, meaning that the current contract will remain in place. The unions have said that they plan to take their decision to state courts.

Dozens of Aramark employees have been banned for fraternizing with inmates. One was even charged with bringing marijuana into a prison.
