Law Enforcement Union Sues Over Walker's Law.

Source: nyt/ap

A law enforcement union filed a lawsuit Tuesday challenging the constitutionality of a Wisconsin law effectively ending collective bargaining for most public workers.

The lawsuit brought by the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Association seeks to strike down the law, championed by Republican Gov. Scott Walker, as a violation of constitutional rights of free speech, association and equal protection. While state troopers and motor vehicle inspectors were exempted from the law, University of Wisconsin officers, Capitol police and Department of Transportation field agents were not.

2. Good.

Keep fighting this guy.

I can't see how this law can possibly be constitutional.

5. Go Wisconsin let's do it again!

Break Walker not the Unions!

Collective bargaining over other issues, such as workplace safety, hours and job security, is not allowed............. of course we would not want the workers to actually have a say over these issues!
I have to ask why Walker would exempt some and not those on the front line!

Sigh....so many fights to win.

8. Didn't Walker give these guys a pass?

It's great if this is the union Walker excluded from his assault on collective bargaining.
