BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Wisconsin bill would limit union reps on workers comp council

Wisconsin bill would limit union reps on workers comp council

Wisconsin has introduced a bill that would limit the number of union members on the Wisconsin Worker’s Compensation Advisory Council.

The council advises on policy matters concerning the development and administration of the state’s workers compensation law.

According to A.B. 308, co-sponsored by state Rep. John Spiros, R-Marshfield, the number of employee representatives on the council who are representatives of organized labor must be in the same proportion as the number of employees in the state who are union members, but no less than two.

The current statute allows for five employee representatives, with no qualifying language on how many employee representatives can be union reps.

A public hearing on the bill took place on Thursday, but the bill has not yet received a vote in committee.
