Civil Service Updates
The Death of Civil Service as We Know It

On Friday, June 17 during the lunch hour, the Coalition to Save Civil Service held a New Orleans Jazz Funeral for the Wisconsin Civil Service.  ACE Board Members, Sally Drew, Kathy Fullin, and Bill Rowe attended.  The purpose was to emphasize that the new civil service rules will take place on July 1, 2016 and drastic changes have been made.  Here are two pictures from the event.
