Wisconsin Judge Blocks Implementation of Law Limiting Collective Bargaining Rights

A Wisconsin judge issued a temporary restraining order blocking the state’s new and contentious collective bargaining law from taking effect, a measure that drew tens of thousands of protesters (including TCU members) to the state Capitol and sent some Democrats fleeing to Illinois in an attempt to block a vote on it.

The judge’s order is a major setback for new Republican Gov. Scott Walker and puts the future of the law in question.

Secretary of State Doug La Follette planned to publish the law on March 25, but the judge’s order will prevent that from happening.

“It is good to see that the rights of hard working, union, Americans can be protected, said TCU President Bob Scardelletti. “TCU hopes that these anti-American laws will be overturned.”
