MADISON (WKOW) -- Key parts of Governor Walker's collective bargaining law will remain blocked while the state appeals a federal court decision.
Friday U.S. District Judge William Conley ruled that portions of Act 10, as the law is known, are unconstitutional.
Specifically, he blocked the parts requiring mandatory annual re certification of employee unions and banning the collection of union dues from employee paychecks.
The Wisconsin State Journal reports Judge Conley's ruling said those parts of Act 10 appeared to punish unions that opposed the Governor, not those that supported him.
Public safety unions were not as effected by Act 10 as the other state worker unions.
