The Act 10 Ruling and Reactions by the State, Employers and Unions

On September 14, 2012, Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas ruled that significant portions of Act 10, the drastic revisions made in 2011 to the law that governed Wisconsin's public employee unions and the scope of collective bargaining, were unconstitutional. Among other things, the judge struck down Act 10's severe limitation on the unions' and municipal employers' ability to bargain wages and prohibition against bargaining other employment terms, the prohibition on dues deductions from union members' salaries, and the requirement of annual recertification elections by supermajorities. Plaintiff Madison Teachers, Inc. is represented in the case by CWPB attorneys Lester Pines, Susan Crawford and Tamara Packard.
