MADISON, WI 9WTAQ) - The 4th District Court of Appeals is urging the Wisconsin Supreme Court to take on challenge to the law which effectively did away with collective bargaining for most state employees.

The appeals court says the legal issues brought up by a challenge from two unions needs to be put to rest.

Unions which represent city of Milwaukee workers and Madison school teachers argue the law backed by Governor Scott Walker is unconstitutional. A Dane County judge agreed last year, but it isn’t clear whether the ruling applies outside Milwaukee and Dane counties.

An effort by the Wisconsin Department of Justice to put the ruling on hold while the appeal plays out was rejected.
