Debate over collective bargaining to go before state Supreme Court


MADISON (WKOW) -- The debate over collective bargaining will be in front of the state Supreme Court.

The court has set a June 6th date for all parties to appear. They will then decide if they will in fact take up the case.

At issue is if lawmakers broke the open meetings law when they met and most collective bargaining rights were stripped from most state workers.

Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne filed the complaint in March.

Republican leaders have said that if the issue was not resolved in a court by June they would consider adding collective bargaining to the state budget.
