Pro-Union protesters in Wisconsin directed state workers to a location where doctor’s signed notes could be collected by Wisconsin union members who skipped work to protest in Madison.
The Wausau Daily Herald reported on Thursday, “In Mosinee, the 90 teachers out of 150 could lose a day’s pay if they don’t have a doctor’s note, but district Superintendent Jerry Rosso couldn’t give a specific dollar figure.”:
Some students in the Mosinee School District were happy to have a day off Thursday, after 90 of the district’s teachers called in sick, but some parents said the move hurt their kids’ education.
Teachers and students across northcentral Wisconsin stayed home from work and walked out of classes Thursday — and some will do the same Friday — to protest a sweeping set of changes to union rights proposed by Gov. Scott Walker.
