The California Prison Guards union is dropping its recall campaign against Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.A spokesman for the powerful union says it will focus on issues on next month's ballot instead.

The union launched its recall campaign in September in frustration over its lack of a state contract since 2006. Union leaders accuse Schwarzenegger of trying to break the Union, which he denies.

The union's first recall petition was rejected last week. They had until Friday to submit a new petition.
