County board meeting update

MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW)- We have a follow up to last night's Marathon County Board meeting, which ended with board members deciding not to consider a contact extension for union workers.

The decision will strip the workers of their collective bargaining rights once their contract runs out at the end of this year.

The County says the temporary freeze on the budget relief bill won't affect the board's decision.

Marathon County leaders say they made the decision because they were afraid a long term agreement would have a negative impact on services.
