Yoo Hoo, AFSCME!

The Governor of New York tried to impose mandatory furloughs on all the workers due to their fiscal situation. However, he went about it all wrong, and the unions sued for an injunction.

Sounds familiar, no?

Anyway, the unions prevailed. The Court ruled that government can't just impose changes that would cause irreparable harm without proving the need and that all other options had been exhausted.

While the circumstances are a bit different from New York and Milwaukee County, there may be something of use in the ruling, I would think.
