    Re: Judge voids controversial Wisconsin union law

    Only time will tell, but it sure seems, based on the questions being asked, that the supreme court is not on board with Sumi's decision and believe she over stepped.

    That said, at least we agree on big business lobbying. But I won't allow a governor to force working people to forgo rights that are granted to everyone else.
    Where in the bill is the bolded part?

    winning ... again!
    sure... when you show me that is the ONLY way to alleviate eye strain.

    If an employee has an issue with a SAFETY concern, they are free to report it to OSHA, who will investigate, without naming the employee. It's kinda what they do.
    How to File a Complaint with OSHA
    The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 gives employees and their representatives the right to file a complaint and request an OSHA inspection of their workplace if they believe there is a serious hazard or their employer is not following OSHA standards. Further, the Act gives complainants the right to request that their names not be revealed to their employers.

    Complaints from employees and their representatives are taken seriously by OSHA. It is against the law for an employer to fire, demote, transfer, or discriminate in any way against a worker for filing a complaint or using other OSHA rights.
    Not only are you not winning, you're FAIL is at near epic proportions.

    Right after the lines that state 'the next part of this law is completely fictitious, and bares no resemblance to reality.'

    IE just spewing out the talking points of that side and have nothing factual to back up the claims. Gotcha.

    Acting with unusual speed, the state Supreme Court on Tuesday reinstated Gov. Scott Walker's plan to all but end collective bargaining for tens of thousands of public workers. The court found a committee of lawmakers was not subject to the state's open meetings law, and so did not violate that law when they hastily approved the measure and made it possible for the Senate to take it up.

    The majority opinion was by Justices Michael Gableman, David Prosser, Patience Roggensack and Annette Ziegler. The other three justices - Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson and Justices Ann Walsh Bradley and N. Patrick Crooks - concurred in part and dissented in part.

    The opinion voided all orders in the case from the lower court. It came just before 5 p.m., sparing Republicans who control the Legislature from taking up the contentious issue of collective bargaining again.

    Legislative leaders had said they would have inserted the limits on collective bargaining into the state budget late Tuesday if the court hadn't acted by then. But the high court ruled just before that budget debate was to begin.

    The court ruled that Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi's ruling, which had held up implementation of the collective bargaining law, was void ab initio, or invalid from the outset.

    from athens to sacto, there's no stopping it, as inexorable as math
    Proof the system works.

    Congrats to the state of Wisconsin, and a big **** off to the Democrats who chickened out on their sworn duties when this all started, and also to those who initiate recalls specifically because of this law.
    Rock on, Gov. Walker!

    because they are not subject to it.

    Thanks BD for that bit of breaking news. It brightened my day.
    and I bet the reinstatement just broke your itty bitty heart, didn't it.
