On the Dane County ballot this year will be a nonbinding referendum asking: "Should all Wisconsin workers have the right to seek safe working conditions and fair pay through collective bargaining?"
The referendum is the brainchild of county Supv. Dianne Hesselbein, who is running for state Assembly.
"Collective bargaining was practically born in Wisconsin, and I don't want to see it die," she says. "I want to send our next governor a message that we are with them."
