Milwaukee teachers abandon their Viagra lawsuit

The Milwaukee teachers union has decided to drop a case regarding the withdrawal of Viagra as an insured medication for it’s members. The union had initially sued the school board for deducting Viagra from the health insurance plan, and this was segregating and discriminating the male teachers from the women.  The school board hit back at these claims, arguing that this decision was made back in 2005, to help reduce spending.

Although Viagra was withdrawn by the school board back in 2005, the union had decided to proceed with legal action in 2005 as well. This was an attempt at forcing the board to add the medication in its insurance coverage.

The action taken by the union had met with fierce criticism, as they had decided on court action at a time when a number of teachers were in fear of their job security.

Back in 2005 at the time of the saga, State Representative Jason Fields had this to say: “The fact of contention is kind of frightening. What are our priorities? I’m all for love and peace; but almost 1 million dollars? (The estimate cost of adding Viagra to the bill) And you go to court over this issue”.
