MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A state law that took effect in late May designed to help union organizing efforts will not be enforced, under a stipulation reached between business groups and Gov. Jim Doyle’s administration.
According to the stipulation signed Thursday and pending approval from a judge, the state law barring companies from requiring employees to attend meetings at which management talked about unionization could not be enforced.
Before that law change in May, companies could require employees to attend those meetings.
They signed a stipulation with the state attorney general’s office declaring that federal labor law allowing such meetings to take place trumps the state law.
