Workers are supporting gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke, Attorney General candidate Susan Happ and a slate of pro-worker local candidates.
Pat Goldstein with the American Federation of Teachers Local 3535 which represents faculty and staff at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee was motivated to participate in this weekend’s election activity because of Scott Walker’s attacks on collective bargaining rights.
“I’m ready to get rid of Scott Walker,” explained Goldstein. “University faculty across Wisconsin was just on the verge of having a union voice and winning representation rights when Scott Walker decimated our union rights.”
Wisconsin is ready to stop the attacks on workers by electing a Mary Burke on November 4. Wisconsin is ready to give workers a raise and support good job growth in state. Scott Walker has failed on his 250,000 jobs pledge. Under his leadership, Wisconsin is dead last in the Midwest in jobs.
Scott Walker’s economic record is dismal.
Affiliates that participated in last week’s election activities include: Alliance for Retired Americans, Amalgamated Transit Workers, United Auto Workers, Communications Workers, Electrical Workers, United Food and Commercial Workers, Laborers, Letter Carriers, Machinists, Plumbers & Pipefitters, Postal Workers, Service Employees, State, County & Municipal Employees, United Steelworkers, American Federation of Teachers and the Wisconsin Education Association Council.
