Thank you, Quazi!
Oh come on. I knew anyone could answer it. I just wanted you to post it so I could prove a point.I showed you what you asked for. You thought no one could answer it. The truth is anyone could, I just got to it first and it still stands as correct information based on fact.
I have no idea what you are talking about "Madison contracts". Can you provide some news story or anything to back up your claims?

On February 17, Madison Mayor Dave Ciezlewicz and the Madison Common Council voted to approve the extension of twelve labor contracts through 2012 in an emergency session. The process of approving labor contracts often takes days or weeks, but both Mayor Ceizlewicz and the Common Council agreed on the importance ensuring that “all employees can continue to receive current pension and health benefits for the next two years.” Following the vote to approve labor contracts, the Common Council marched to the Overture Center with representatives of the twelve unions to show “solidarity.”

In a House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) asked Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) a couple of questions about his recent union-busting tactics.
One was, how much money would your proposal that would require unions to hold annual votes to continue representing their own members save for your state budget? After a little rhetoric meant to misdirect, Kucinich interrupted to again ask how much money would it save his state? Walker answered "It doesn't save any". Nonfiscal union-busting tactic.
Another question was about how much money the plan to prohibit payroll deduction of union member dues save the state budget? After aother round of political double-speak from Walker in which he wouldn't answer the question, Kucinich presented a document from the the Wisconsin Legislative Fiscal Bureau, the state’s equivalent of the Congressional Budget Office. The document from the LFB concluded that Walker’s measures were nonfiscal, meaning it had no effect on the state budget. Nonfiscal union-busting tactic.
