WEAC responds to Appeals Court ruling against the union

A federal appeals court Friday overturned a federal judge's ruling declaring parts of Governor Walker's Act 10 law unconstitutional.
The plaintiff in the case is the Wisconsin Education Association Council(WEAC)
WEAC said Friday it's in the process of reviewing the appeals court decision to determine the impact of this ruling and the organization's next steps.
The following can be attributed to WEAC President Mary Bell:
"Wisconsin educators are extremely disappointed with the appeals court ruling. What is so abundantly clear is that Act 10 was never about addressing the fiscal needs of the state but instead a ploy to eliminate workers' rights to have a voice through their union – political payback for citizens who didn't endorse the governor. This marks a setback, but the fact of the matter is that our members will not give up on their commitment to restoring their rights to negotiate for fair wages and safe working conditions."
