Labor reaction to collective bargaining law ruling

MADISON, Wisconsin (WXOW) - After the court's ruling, Mary Bell, president of the Wisconsin Education Association Council released the following:

"Wisconsin educators are extremely disappointed with the appeals court ruling. What is so abundantly clear is that Act 10 was never about addressing the fiscal needs of the state but instead a ploy to eliminate workers' rights to have a voice through their union – political payback for citizens who didn't endorse the governor. This marks a setback, but the fact of the matter is that our members will not give up on their commitment to restoring their rights to negotiate for fair wages and safe working conditions."
