Representatives from Wauwatosa's teachers union headed to Madison today to show their opposition to the proposals in Gov. Scott Walker's budget-repair bill, continuing a string of protests the group has been involved with this week.
After meeting with Wauwatosa School District officials Thursday, the union sent one representative from each district school to Madison today to voice their disapproval for Walker's proposal, which would require union employees to pay a greater share of pension and health insurance costs and lose their ability to collectively bargain during future contract negotiations.
Members of the union also participated in marches outside Walker's Wauwatosa home on Tuesday night and state Sen. Alberta Darling's Menomonee Falls office on Wednesday, said Debbie Brent, president of the Wauwatosa Education Association.
Brent said union members also will attend a rally Saturday at the state capitol.
