I've got a peer who's direct is regularly rude to my directs.  My directs have given polite peer feedback to the rude person but there have been no improvements. 

Do I follow the peer feedback model and go to the rude person's manager, or is there a different way recommended to try to get the rude, unprofessional behavior corrected?

You do not have "feedback" for your peer, do you? You have information about his/her directs that you want to share. I would definitely discuss it, but make sure to use behavioral descriptions. "Rude" and "unprofessional" are not behaviors, they are conclusions you draw from behavior.

Will do-- I have specific examples that I intend on bringing to the other manager, I just wasn't in the mood to type out the examples in my post.  Thanks for the response.

Make sure that you are in the mood before you talk to your peer.
