MADISON (WKOW) – A Dane County judge has struck down the state law that limits public employee collective bargaining rights.
A spokesperson for Gov. Scott Walker says he is confident the decision will be overturned on the appeal.
Judge Juan Colas ruled the law is null and void and violates both the state and U.S. Constitution.
The challenge to the law was brought by Madison teachers and Milwaukee city workers. Their attorney, Lester Pines, says the ruling is effective immediately and means the portion of Act 10 limiting collective bargaining rights is null and void for those two unions.
