MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) -- Wisconsin’s Supreme Court has determined who can argue and what can be discussed when Madison Teachers vs. Scott Walker comes before them Monday. This is one of the suits challenging Act 10, which changed many things pertaining to collective bargaining for public employees.
In a late Friday night decision, the Supreme Court decided to limit Monday’s oral arguments to substantive issues raised by certification of unions from the Court of Appeals. The arguments for and against motions to stay Dane County Judge Juan Colas’ ruling on union recertification meetings and his contempt of court ruling against two Wisconsin Employment Relations Board members will take place November 19th.
The unions that are not a party to the lawsuit had asked the court for an opportunity to respond to certain issues as a matter of fundamental fairness. Justices agreed to hear them under specific guidelines.
