Not a big shock, but ugh:
In a 74-page decision issued today, in which one of the three judges dissented in part, the Chicago-based court reversed a Milwaukee federal judge’s finding last year that portions of the law were unconstitutional.

The parts of the law known as Act 10, requiring annual recertification votes and barring the voluntary deduction of dues, don’t violate U.S. constitutional guarantees of equal protection under the law and free speech, the appeals court said.

We'll know the playing field is getting close to level when a Democratic governor and legislature pass a bill that's as strongly pro-worker as Walker's bill is anti-worker, and courts uphold it.
