of Collective
Bargaining
Madison-
Today Governor Walker's office released examples
of
how
collective bargaining impactsgovernment and
how
reforming collective bargaining
can
improve government. The following are some
of
the
items contained in collective bargaining provisions:1. Employer must provide bulletin boards
to
post information about union social and recreationalactivities. The size and location
ofthe
board
is
subject
to
collective bargaining.
2.
Employer
is
prevented
from
adjusting schedules
to
prevent
the
use
of
overtime.
3.
When a local union meets
thefollowing
conditions are subject
to
bargaining:
1.
lighting,
2.
vision care and examinations,
3;
noise,4. chairs,
5.
desks,
6.
footrests,
7.
adjustable terminals and keyboards,8.
work
environment design (wall cover, carpet, windows),9. room temperature,4. Starting
of
vehicles during cold
weather
is
subject
to
collective bargaining.
5. Paid
time
off
to
donate blood.
6.
Whether
or
not
a directory
of
employees
is
allowed and
what
information will
be
included in it.Yesterday
the
Governor's office released these examples
of
the
fiscal impact
of
collective bargaining
No
Volunteer
Crossing Guards
Allowed
A Wausau public employee union filed a grievance
to
prohibit
a local volunteer
from
serving
as
a schoolcrossing guard. The 86-year-old lives
just
two
blocks away and serves everyday free
of
charge.Principal Steve
Miller
says,
"He said, you know, this gives me a reason
to
get up in
the
morning
to
comeand help these kids in
the
neighborhood."

But for a local union
that
represents crossing guards, it isn't
that
simple. Representatives didn't
want
to
go on camera
but
say
if
a crossing guard
is
needed,
then one
should
be
officially hired by
the
city.Source: WAOW-TV, 1127/10
$6,000
Extra
for
Carrying
a
Pager
Some
state
employees, due
to the
nature
of
their positions, are required
to
carry pagers during off-duty hours
in
order
to
respond
to
emergency situations. Due
to the
collective bargaining
agreements,
these
employeesare
compensated
an extra five hours of pay each week,
whether they are
paged or not.For an employee earning an average salary
of
$50,000
per
year, this requirement can cost more
than
$6,000
in
additional compensation.Source: 2008-09 Agreement

Arbitrator
Reinstates
Porn-Watching
Teacher
A Cedarburg school
teacher
was reinstated by an arbitrator
after
being fired for viewing pornography on aschool computer. The school district ultimately succeeded
in
terminating
theteacher
only after
takingthe
case
to
the
Wisconsin Supreme Court
at great
cost
to the
taxpayers.

'Outstanding
First
Year
Teacher'
Laid
Off
Milwaukee Public Schools
teacher
Megan Sampson was laid off less
than one week
after being
named
Outstanding First Year Teacher by
the
Wisconsin Council
of
English Teachers. She lost
her
job because
the
collective bargaining
agreement
requires layoffs
to
be made
based on seniority
rather than
merit.Informed
that
her
union had rejected a lower-cost health care plan,
that
still would have required zerocontribution from teachers, Sampson said, "Given
the
opportunity,
of
course I would switch
to
a different plan
to
save my job, or
the
jobs
of
10
other
teachers.

Union
Opposes Cost-Saving Lawn
Mowing
Program
As
a cost cutting measure, Racine County began using county inmates
to
cut
the
grass
in
medians and right-ofways
at
no cost
to
the
taxpayers. A county employee union filed a grievance indicating it was
the
right
of
government
workers
to
cut
the
grass, even
though
it
would cost
the
taxpayers dramatically more.

of

in
addition
to
their
already
