Teamsters win right to mow lawns...

The Teamsters won a round:
Racine County's use of inmates to mow state highway medians and shoulders violated 2009 labor agreements, an arbitrator has decided.

Racine County has been using jail inmates for the last year to mow state highway medians, and that upset union members who filed a grievance.

An arbitrator decision, publicly released Tuesday, said Racine County did violate 2009 labor agreements by using inmates to mow, but the arbitrator's decision did not directly say the county needed to stop using inmates to mow.

Ssssh!  Don't tell the arbitrator about the goats...
