Walker to sign bill on local governments’ labor agreements
MADISON, Wis. — Gov. Scott Walker will sign a bill Monday that blocks local governments from requiring collective bargaining agreements on public projects.
The governor will sign the bill at AmeriLux International, a De Pere manufacturer of building materials.
The Republican-controlled Legislature easily passed the legislation this session despite opposition from Democrats, who called it another attack on unions.
Supporters of the bill say it gives non-union firms a better chance to bid on public projects, and gives local governments more options.
