No rush to the bargaining table after union ruling
Friday ruling rolled back Act 10
MADISON, Wis. — There doesn’t appear to be any rush to the bargaining table in the wake of a court ruling that restores the rights of school and local government employees in Wisconsin to negotiate with their employers.
Attorney Lester Pines brought the case on behalf of the Madison teachers union. He said Monday that “everyone is taking their time to make sure they understand the decision and then to figure out what steps they need to take.”
A Dane County judge overturned the 2011 law is it pertains to school and local government workers. The ruling does not affect state employees.
Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen plans to appeal and ask that the ruling be put on hold during that process.
