1/25/13 - State Patrol Updates Avaliable under Members Only


November 13, 2012 the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Association (WLEA) filed suit in Dane County Circuit Court against Scott Walker’s so-called “budget repair” bill. The complaint is similar to the one filed by Madison Teachers Inc. (MTI), but alleges that portions of the Act which apply to state employees are equally unconstitutional. The MTI case applied only to municipal employers, employees and their unions. In the MTI case, Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas found the provisions of Act 10 that restricted collective bargaining, limited the right to deduct dues for general employee unions and to obtain wage increases above the cost of living and restricted “fair share” agreements and certification violated the employees’ rights of free speech, association, and equal
protection. To read the entire news release please click here

The Wisconsin Law Enforcement Association (WLEA) was created in 2005 to represent the Law Enforcement bargaining unit in the State of Wisconsin. Since the WLEA has been in existence, WLEA has successfully negotiated three contracts with the State of Wisconsin.

The WLEA membership consists of Police Officers, Detectives, and Police Communication Operators (PCOs) from the University of Wisconsin System Schools and the Capitol Police Department. It also includes Troopers, Inspectors, and PCOs from the Wisconsin State Patrol (WSP) and Field Agents from the Wisconsin Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

The WLEA is divided into three local unions. Local 1 represents the WSP. Local 2 represents the UW and Capitol Police Departments. Local 3 represents the DMV Customer Service Representatives.

The WLEA is devoted to fighting for the rights of the employees which it represents. If you have questions or concerns, please contact your local representative.

Please use this website as the resource it is intended for its membership. We encourage constructive feedback being presented to better the website and our service to the members as a whole.
