The Wausau Daily Herald reports the unions buckled.
Update: Labor Day parade organizers say Republicans can march,
Organizers of the Labor Day parade in Wausau backtracked on Tuesday night from an earlier decision to bar Republican lawmakers from participating in the event.
In an email statement issued shortly before midnight, Marathon County Labor Council President Randy Radtke said everyone will be permitted to march in the parade “because we don’t want to have community groups and school bands affected.”
So it took till almost midnight for the unions to tuck their tails between their legs and open the parade to all.
