Milwaukee – In light of the recent reports of potential illegal negotiations between Milwaukee County and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) District Council 48, Supervisor Taylor issued the following statement:

“It has become increasingly frustrating watching the drama between certain members of the Milwaukee County Board and AFSCME play out in the media. At a moment in which the Board has a target on its back and therefore should be acting on their best behavior, it is very clear that the opposite is taking place.

“Even the most active union members that I know who absolutely despise Act 10 have come to the realization that it is the law of the land. They are fully aware that Act 10 will eventually go before the State Supreme Court which has the balance of power clearly positioned to uphold it. They also know that any agreement with the Board will end up being shouldered by the hard earning taxpayers of Milwaukee County.

“In light of the fact that any agreement ultimately has to go before the entire County Board, I am asking both the Chairwoman and the Finance and Personnel Committee Co-Chairs to publically announce that no deal with AFSCME is in the works and that no agreement will make it to the Board floor.”
