Madison, Wisconsin] The leaders of Wisconsin’s largest government employee union encouraged their members to ratify the tentative labor agreement before Republican Governor-elect Scott Walker is in a position to negotiate tougher terms. The labor leaders also appear to have been given a heads up as to the upcoming legislative calendar, a courtesy so far not extended to legislative Republicans or the general public....

“We know that leadership in the current legislature is organizing a special session during the week of 12/13/2010 to ratify these and other bargaining units.”

The WSEU letter is the first indication that a timeline for a special session has been set. Democratic leadership, who currently control the legislature but will be in the minority in both houses come January 3, 2010, have not commented on a possible schedule. Republicans have called on both Democratic Governor Jim Doyle and the Democratic legislative leadership to not hold such as session.
