Right-to-work legislation advances in Wisconsin statehouse

Workers gather outside the State Capitol building in MadisonBy Brendan O'Brien MADISON, Wis. (Reuters) - A Wisconsin legislative panel was due on Monday to review a state Senate-passed bill that would allow private-sector employees to avoid joining a union or paying union dues even when working under union-negotiated contracts. The measure, which would make Wisconsin the 25th state to enact such a "right-to-work" law, has been cast by supporters as an incentive for keeping and attracting businesses and jobs, while unions brand it as a thinly disguised assault on organized labor. The legislation was narrowly approved on Wednesday by the Wisconsin Senate, which like the state Assembly is led by a Republican majority. Governor Scott Walker, a potential Republican presidential candidate, also supports the legislation.

Canada's Mitel Networks to buy Mavenir Systems for $560 million
(Reuters) - Canadian telecom services provider Mitel Networks Corp said it would buy mobile networking software maker Mavenir Systems Inc for $560 million in cash and stock. Mitel earlier tried to buy ShoreTel Inc but the smaller U.S. company rejected its raised bid of $574 million in November. Buying Mavenir will help Mitel tap the Voice over Long-Term Evolution (VoLTE) market, which repackages voice calls as data and transmits them over carriers' high-speed data networks. ...
Homeland Security funding drama darkens U.S. fiscal outlook

In this Feb. 27, 2015, photo, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of Calif., accompanied by House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer of Md., voice their objections to the Republican majority during a delay in voting for a short-term spending bill for the Homeland Security Department during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington. Democrats didn’t get all they wanted in Congress’ struggle over Homeland Security, but many feel they are winning a broader political war that will haunt Republicans in 2016 and beyond. "It’s a staggering failure of leadership that will prolong this manufactured crisis of theirs and endanger the security of the American people," said Pelosi. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)By Richard Cowan and David Lawder WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Congress narrowly averted a partial shutdown of the U.S. domestic security agency late on Friday night, but the forces behind the chaotic episode remain - fractious Republicans and House Speaker John Boehner's lack of control over them. In five to seven months, the federal debt ceiling will again be reached, and by October Congress must pass spending bills to keep the government running in the new fiscal year. Failing to deal effectively with these issues could have much more damaging repercussions - such as a broad government shutdown or a debt default - than a partial shutdown of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Some conservatives speak of ousting Boehner, but it is unlikely they can muster enough votes, while others made clear on Friday that they were willing to take big risks to score ideological points.     Brinkmanship like this, reminiscent of 2013's 16-day federal government shutdown, was supposed to be over.
