Stamping Their Widdle Feets All the Way to Court, Again

What a surprise.

One day after the Wisconsin Supreme Court ordered the reinstatement of collective-bargaining legislation that potentially affects thousands of public-sector employees, a coalition of unions filed suit in federal court seeking to block it.

The Wisconsin State AFL-CIO on Wednesday joined a number of other unions seeking to halt Gov. Scott Walker's controversial collective bargaining legislation.

The groups include the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) Council 24, AFSCME Council 40, AFSCME Council 48, the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the Wisconsin Education Association Council (WEAC), the Wisconsin State Employees Union, The Wisconsin State AFL-CIO and the Service Employees International Union – Health Care Wisconsin (SEIU).

Good luck with that, boyzzzz.

Given that it's filed in Madistan and will be heard by Conley, there's better-than-even odds that it will get to the 7th Circuit before it gets shoveled into the dustbin of history.

They are honestly trying to claim that this violates their right to assembly?

So they want a Federal court to rule on 'rights' federal union workers don't have?

As has been pointed out before, the only 'right' the union bosses are worried about preserving is the 'right' to have the State/Municipality collect their dues for them. Take that away and we'll see how 'committed' the membership really is.
