WAUSAU (WAOW)-- Marathon County union workers will not see their contracts ratified before they lose collective bargaining rights.
The decision was made today in a 24-10 vote by the Marathon County Board of Supervisors.
Last Thursday, union leaders asked the board to extend county employee contracts before Governor Walker's bill stripped most collective bargaining rights.
In a 22-10 vote, supervisors decided not to extend those contracts, saying they felt the process would be too rushed for consideration.
Board Chair Keith Langanhan says they were given more time after a judge issued a temporary restraining order regarding Governor Walker's budget bill.
In spite of the extra time, county supervisors voted not to reconsider those contracts.
One year after a deadly shooting rampage in Marathon County, the community and businesses honored the four lives lost in different ways.
