MADISON – Today, a Dane County judge struck down elements of Act 10 because it violates the right to equal protection under the law concerning different law enforcement agencies access to collective bargaining. Senator Melissa Agard (D-Madison) released the following statement:

“This ruling confirms that Act 10 created divisions among working people in Wisconsin, and reinforces the principle that workers must be treated equally under the law.

“When I, and countless others, protested at the Capitol in 2011 – we were standing up for these rights. While we celebrate this pro-labor ruling tonight, we must not stop until Act 10 is overturned and collective bargaining is restored for all public sector workers.”
