Van Hollen to Ask for Stay in Union Ruling
The next salvo in the fight over a judge's ruling reinstating collective bargaining rights for schools and local governments is expected to come from Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen.
Van Hollen is expected to file a request Tuesday that the ruling be put on hold while an appeal is pending.
Van Hollen's Department of Justice is representing Gov. Scott Walker in the case that was brought by the Madison teachers union and a union representing city of Milwaukee workers.
If the ruling is not put on hold, it could open the door to unions negotiating new contracts with employers while the legal fight continues.
Many on both sides said Monday they were still trying to understand the ramifications of the ruling that came down late Friday afternoon.
