Push to Act on Act 10

Push to Act on Act 10

Unions in Wisconsin are asking the new liberal-majority Supreme Court to strike down Act 10. 

A group of public sector unions, including the state’s teachers’ union, yesterday asked the court to overturn the 2011 state law that limited how teachers unions could bargain.  That law limited teachers’ unions to only getting raises, capped at the rate of inflation, in their contracts.  The union lawsuit says Act 10 created two separate categories of public employees, and violated the state’s equal protection clause.  Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos yesterday said ending Act 10 would bankrupt local schools across the state.
