Wisconsin's third largest school district no longer has a certified teachers union.
Teacher contracts in Kenosha, Janesville, and Milwaukee expired over the summer and under Act 10, union were required to file for annual recertification by August 30. However, Kenosha missed the deadline and its union can no longer bargain base wages with the district.
Christina Brey with the Wisconsin Education Association Council says most of the council's affiliates will probably not seek recertification because it is one more hoop for them to go through.
Unions' bargaining is limited to base wage increases, which are tied to inflation, by Act 10.
