In the news: New Prof. Helpap helps explain Act 10 ruling
A new member of UW-Green Bay’s faculty is helping to make sense of a ruling on the controversial Act 10 legislation affecting collective bargaining rights for most public employees. Prof. David Helpap, Public and Environmental Affairs, spoke Monday (Sept. 17) with WFRV, Channel 5’s Heather Sawaski. Last week’s ruling is different from previous ruling’s on Act 10, Helpap said. “The past ruling the Supreme Court looked at was more procedural,” he said. “Was the process used to achieve this constitutional? This is much more fundamental, regarding the ability to limit collective bargaining and differentiate between public employees. Whether it be union or non-union, or public safety or non-public safety.” Full story.
