Anti-Worker Legislation

The Destruction of Overtime Protection Bill, Assembly Bill 611, would abolish hard-fought overtime protections and wage rights for workers.  Instead of fairly compensating an employee for overtime hours worked by paying an employee time and a half in wages, employers will be able to instead give an employee comp time and have final say over when comp time is used.  The Assembly Labor Committee held a public hearing on AB611 on February 12. This bill is currently still in the Assembly Labor Committee. Keep the pressure up and tell your legislators you don’t want this bill to advance any further today! 

Like weekends?  The 7-Day Work Week Bill, Assembly Bill 667, has been introduced in the state Senate as Senate Bill 508.Read more... “Anti-Worker Legislation”

Licensure Info

To all Brother’s and Sister’s

Wisconsin Dept of Safety and Professional Services is looking at April 1 as a firm date. Electrician are reguired to have a license by April 1 otherwise they cannot work. Wisconsin Dept of Safety and Professional Services think they can handle the volume of applications that should be submitted in the next few days to ensure everyone who should be licensed does receive the credential in time. And they're telling us that many applications have been processed already.

Please don't count on this current status to change. Other groups have raised concerns too but Wisconsin Dept of Safety and Professional Services seems to think it will be fine. So please get your applications in ASAP.

Also, the DSPS website still refers to "beginner electrician" and hasn't been changed yet to "registered electrician".Read more... “Licensure Info”
