If history and precedent are any indication, unions stand little chance of having Wisconsin’s new right-to-work law overturned in court.
A labor leader is predicting that Wednesday will look similar to Tuesday around the state Capitol in Madison.
Two busloads of police officers are on hand at the Wisconsin state Capitol in advance of a rally and public hearing on a right-to-work bill.
Trade union leaders are not of a single mind on whether their members should attend rallies the AFL-CIO has organized to protest the right-to-work bill Republican lawmakers introduced Friday.
A trades union leader said Saturday that he and his colleagues will not be encouraging their members to take part in two rallies the AFL-CIO has organized next week to protest right-to-work legislation pushed by Republican lawmakers.
The Wisconsin Legislature will take up a right-to-work bill next week in a surprise move that runs contrary to the wishes of likely 2016 presidential candidate Gov. Scott Walker who had urged lawmakers to delay any debate until later in the year.
Gov. Scott Walker continues to avoid talking about making Wisconsin a right-to-work state.
The AFL-CIO of Wisconsin is asking the public to sign an online petition to express disapproval of possible right-to-work legislation that would prevent workers at unionized companies from having to pay mandatory dues.
In saying the Wisconsin Legislature must take up right-to-work legislation next year, the state Senate's majority leader Thursday brought up the possibility of exemptions meant to preserve construction unions’ role in training workers.
A Republican lawmaker promised Tuesday to introduce a right-to-work bill, prompting warnings from a Democratic leader that the state could see a round of protests reminiscent of the massive demonstrations against Gov. Scott Walker's law stripping public workers of their union rights.
Gov. Scott Walker's contention that a right-to-work proposal would be a “huge distraction” from his efforts to create jobs has not prevented business groups from tabbing the legislation as a priority.
Milwaukee resident Mark Kohel was in the majority Wednesday afternoon during a public hearing on We Energies' proposal to increase its rates.
