LA CROSSE, Wis. - One of the largest teacher unions in the state is re-focusing its efforts in the wake of state legislation that took away many union bargaining rights.
About a thousand Wisconsin public school educators gathered at the La Crosse Center for the Wisconsin Education Association Council or WEAC meeting on Saturday.
The delegates elected a new president and made decisions on the future of WEAC.
The newly-elected president, Betsy Kippers, said WEAC is having to form new strategies since losing bargaining rights under the ACT 10 legislation.
Kippers also said they will change the way they group local WEAC associations across the state by consolidating more than 25 geographic areas down to just more than 10.19930466
