96 percent of recertifications pass

Ninety-six percent – 240 of 251 – of 2016 recertification elections for WEAC locals passed this fall, results released Wednesday by the Wisconsin Employment Relations Commission show. “In the local associations that chose recertification elections, we saw a tremendous support for the role of the union in supporting educators so they can better help their students,” said WEAC President Ron Martin, a middle school social studies teacher. “This support signals the strong role unions still play in their local school districts to partner with parents and their communities on ensuring the best public schools for students.”
