MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Three big labor unions have endorsed Democrat Mary Burke for governor, even though she won't promise to a seek a repeal of the Act 10 public union bargaining limits.

The state's largest teachers' union, the state AFL-CIO, and Madison Teachers Incorporated all got behind Burke Wednesday.

The former Trek Bicycle executive says she opposes the law and favors collective bargaining for public workers -- but she also agrees with the part of Act 10 which makes them pay more for their health insurance and pensions.
