After six days of protests that packed the state capitol, Wisconsin's major teachers' union called on members to start returning to work Monday but keep fighting a proposed rollback of union protections for public
"To educators whose contracts do not recognize Presidents' Day, we call on them to return to duty by day - and find ways to be vocal and visible after their workday is done," Mary Bell, president of the nearly 100,000-member
Wisconsin Education Association Council, told members in a statement issued Sunday afternoon. "To those whose contracts recognize Presidents' Day as a holiday, we call on them to return to Madison."
But other unions said they plan to continue demonstrations into Tuesday, and not all members of Bell's union had decided to follow her lead. Members of Madison's WEAC local, the MTI Teachers Union, have voted to remain at the
capitol on Monday at least, its president, Mike Lipp, told CNN.
