GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV)-- The Madison teachers union plans to go to the district demanding a new contract be negotiated with collective bargaining, but, Green Bay teachers union isn't planning to do the same anytime soon.
Interim President of GBEA, Lori Cathe, said WEAC told its locals they could legally ask the school districts to bargain for a new contract after Friday's decision.
"We are able to go back to the school board and say is there something we can change here or there," said Cathe, "at this point we are not planning on doing that, but it is something we'll possibly look into."
Cathe said they anticipate a stay on the ruling which would hold the law in place until the appeal is ruled on.
"We are very excited the ruling is in our favor on Friday, however I do not want to jump the gun," said Cathe.
Cathe said she doesn't see any other the unions taking the same action as Madison's plans to. The GBEA is voting on a new President at Monday night's meeting, and plans to discuss this issue further with members.
