Unions ask for injunction against Act 10


MADISON (WRN)   A Dane County judge is being asked to keep the state from implementing the governor’s controversial collective bargaining changes.

Unions representing Madison teachers and Milwaukee public workers have filed an injunction request in Dane County court, claiming Governor Scott Walker and the Wisconsin Employment Relations Commission are moving ahead with implementing rules changes tied to Act 10. Those efforts are despite a court ruling last year that found portions of the law that apply to school and local government workers are unconstitutional.

The state has appealed the ruling, although the appellate court rejected requests to stay the decision while it considers the case. Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen and Governor Walker have maintained they believe the ruling will eventually be overturned.

Attorneys for the union groups say WERC commissioners claim that the original decision does not apply to them because the judge did not issue an injunction. Unions argue one is now needed to keep the state from writing administrative rules and trying to enforce Act 10 changes.
