Twin Lakes Village Board to meet on union contracts

The Twin Lakes Village Board will hold a special meeting Wednesday to discuss and possibly act on collective bargaining agreements with represented village workers.

The notice for the meeting says the last agreements expired as of the end of 2010.

Some municipalities around the state have been scrambling to approve or extend collective bargaining agreements out ahead of the approval of possible changes to collective bargaining powers for public employees being proposed by Republican Gov. Scott Walker. Those changes have been approved by the state Assembly, but a Senate vote has been stalled by Democratic senators who are not reporting to the Capitol so there is not a quorum for a vote.

Walker is proposing reducing collective bargaining for all public employees to wages and some working conditions.

The meeting notice says that workers in the village public works, sewer, administrative, police officer and police dispatch departments are covered by agreements.

The meeting will begin at 5 p.m. at Village Hall and may move to a closed session. Any action on the agreements would take place in a reconvened open session.
