Governor Walker Proposes Huge Budget Cuts to Wisconsin Employment Relations Commission

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is continuing his decimation of government involvement in disputes between public employee unions and their employers with his budget cut proposal that would attach the free-standing commission, the Wisconsin Employment Relations Commission (WERC), to a larger agency, see its staff positions cut from 25.5 to 9 and its budget would be cut to $1.5 million a year from $3.2 million.  

WERC suffered an obvious reduction in work load after Walker repealed most collective bargaining for most public workers in 2011 that nearly led to his repeal.
