    Unions ask Democrats in Walker recall to make budget veto pledge - JSOnline

    Union leaders are asking Democratic candidates for governor to veto the next state budget if it doesn't restore collective bargaining for public workers, and one leading candidate - Kathleen Falk - has agreed. Such a veto could lead to gridlock with the Legislature, particularly if Republicans continue to control one or both houses, and to possible layoffs of state workers, officials warned. Nonetheless, the move is a key strategy that union leaders are considering for undoing Gov. Scott Walker's repeal last year of most collective bargaining for public employees. Falk, the former Dane County executive, has committed to restoring collective bargaining in the next state budget and vetoing the budget if those provisions come out.

    For one collective bargaining was not abolished.

    The state just refused to bargain on a few very specific issues such as health insurance and pension contributions.

    In other words, gridlock, just like the US Senate is doing.
