Monday, June 30, 2014 - Press Release

Madison – Today, Governor Scott Walker released the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that in-home care workers in Illinois cannot be required to pay union dues:

The Supreme Court’s ruling today reinforces the Act 10 reforms eliminating the requirement for public employees to pay union dues. Our reforms in Act 10 have saved Wisconsin taxpayers more than $3 billion, provided more flexibility to local officials and school districts, and strengthened Wisconsin’s fiscal house.
