Public employees pushing back some of new disciplinary rules

Public employees are pushing back some of the new disciplinary rules that were imposed as part of the controversial 2011 repeal of legal union rights for most government workers in Wisconsin. The Jefferson County Board last week loosened a proposed discipline standard after unions protested, and Columbia County employees are winning a series of changes to a controversial policy that top officials wrote behind closed doors to prevent employee input….“The standards being adopted in many of the counties are a very low threshold for employers and offer very little protection for workers,” said Martha Merrill, lead research analyst for the Madison-based American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 40 who recently surveyed public workers in the state.
