WFNHP President Candice Owley Statement on Today's
Wisconsin Supreme Court Decision Reducing Benefits for County Nurses

Milwaukee, WI--Today's decision by the Wisconsin State Supreme Court reducing retiree benefits for County nurses once again demonstrates how politics now control our legal system, rather than the rule of law. As we have seen over the last few years, the majority of our State Supreme Court makes decisions based on politics--not on the law. As Justice Abrahamson stated in her dissent, the decision was not supported by any legal theory or even legal briefs. It is cold comfort to these retired and retiring nurses that Justice Prosser admits that this decision is a "betrayal of trust to loyal employees."

This decision is clearly just one more attack on working families. First, the State strips away the right to bargain contracts that would have protected these benefits. Now, the Court continues this attack on dedicated nurses who have devoted their working lives in service to their communities.

We are deeply disappointed, but no longer surprised by the actions of this Court.
