Wisconsin Judge Strikes Down Law that Ended Collective Bargaining Rights for Public Employees

Posted On: September 14, 2012

Great news for Labor. Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas ruled today that the Wisconsin law championed by Governor Scott Walker—that essentially stripped collective bargaining rights from public employees in Wisconsin—is null and void because it violates both the State and U.S. Constitutions. The decision only applies to local government employees and will not impact the collective bargaining rights of Wisconsin State employees. Gov. Walker's administration immediately stated that it would appeal the decision.
