In 2011, the State of Wisconsin adopted Act 10, effectively prohibiting non-public safety unions from negotiating with local governments on most issues other than base wages. The Department of Human Resources has been meeting with AFSCME District Council 48, the Wisconsin Federation of Nurses and Health Professionals, the Milwaukee Building and Trades Council, Technicians, Engineers and Architects of Milwaukee County (TEAMCO), the Association of Milwaukee County Attorneys and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers to evaluate how those labor terms in the contracts would map to existing County rules and ordinances.
The Department of Human Resources is committed to the County's employees -- you can see that in our mission and our values - and is engaged in improving employment relations in the County, in the interest of the employees and the public they serve. That's our duty to employees and to the public.
The items on this page reflect the recommendations of the Department of Human Resources and are consistent with our commitment to our co-workers. These recommendations have not yet been adopted and have not been implemented.
Please think twice before printing these items as they are lengthy and, in the case of the Crosswalk Table, will print on 11x17 paper.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to your department's HR Generalist.
