Additional Thoughts on Wisconsin Supreme Court Ruling Upholding Act 10

August 1, 2014 12:52 PM

Public investment in transportation systems, education, parks and sewers are essential for inclusive economic growth. As I stated, I have always believed, as noted by Justice Crooks in yesterday's opinions, "as thoughtful people from across the political spectrum and around the world have long recognized, collective bargaining benefits workers, employers and society itself."

The City intends to follow any labor agreements permissible under the law that were signed to be effective for 2015 and 2016.

There is no question that fair wages and benefits to workers are a key part of keeping our local and state economy moving forward. That continues to be my focus as Mayor.
