MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin school superintendents are confused about what to do, after Friday’s court ruling which struck down the union bargaining limits for school and local government unions.
The law limited bargaining to pay raises at or below inflation, and it called for all public employees to pay more toward their health insurance and pensions.
Miles Turner of the Wisconsin Association of School District Administrators says it’s, “very unclear” what the court decision means. And while superintendents throughout Wisconsin have lots of questions, Turner says he does not know all the answers yet.
It just so happens that the group’s annual meeting is on Friday. Turner said he’s putting together a panel discussion for the gathering – and about 300 superintendents are expected to show up.
Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas issued the ruling on Friday. The state says it will appeal the decision – and to try and keep the one-year-old bargaining law in place while the case is fully reviewed by the appellate court.
