Judge Finds State Commissioners In Contempt Over Act 10
A Madison judge has found Wisconsin labor relations officials in contempt of court for continuing to enforce portions of Gov. Walker's collective bargaining restrictions.
Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas issued his ruling against the Wisconsin Employment Relations Commission following a hearing Monday.
Colas ruled last year the restrictions were unconstitutional as applied to two unions representing Madison teachers and Milwaukee public workers.
It's unclear whether the ruling applies to local government unions across the state however, and WERC is still preparing to hold annual certification elections for about 400 unions in November.
The judge Monday ruled his decision applies statewide and issued an injunction barring the commission from holding the elections.
