Appeals court rules police unions may negotiate health insurance deductibles

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A state appeals court ruled Wednesday that law enforcement unions may negotiate what they have to pay for health insurance deductibles. 

Police unions were exempt from the 2011 Act 10 bargaining restrictions imposed on other state and local public employee groups.

But majority Republicans later decided to impose at least some limits on police groups, by saying they could not negotiate the types of health insurance they get. 

Eau Claire County deputies claimed that they could still have a say on their deductibles.  

The Fourth District Court of Appeals in Madison agreed in a ruling issued Wednesday morning.
