Wisconsin court upholds anti-union legislation

Wisconsin court upholds anti-union legislation...State workers to lose most bargaining rights after state's supreme court reinstates Republican legislation..Wisconsin's highest court has ruled that a controversial measure curbing the collective bargaining rights of public workers in the state can take effect...The supreme court on Tuesday overturned a lower court ruling that Republican legislators violated the state's open meetings law when they passed the measure in March...The measure continues to roil state politics. Six of the Republican senators who supported the law, and three of the Democratic senators who opposed it, will face special recall elections in July in what may be the largest wave of such special elections in US history.
