City Council to Consider Contract Extensions
Long union contract extensions in front of the La Crosse city council Thursday. A response to a new law governing collective bargaining for public workers in the state. City council member Marilyn Wigdahl says the extensions are the right thing to do. It will be her committee that's the first to vote on the contracts followed shortly after by the entire city council. Votes today are on revisions to a transit workers contract extension that's already been agreed on and a new two year contract extension for the city's largest union over which talks began last week.
