Are You Ready For Right To Work?

Regardless of the outcome of November's election for governor, Wisconsin Teapublicans are prepared to introduce so-called "Right to Work" legislation.  If Scott Walker wins, the Teapublicans will intrduce this legislation at their leisure.  If Mary Burke wins, look for Walker to call for a special lame duck session of the state legislature, as they did in Michigan.

Walker has denied that there are any plans to for Right to Work to be introduced, but he's also denied that he was a target in the Walkergate investigations or that his agenda is failing.

Coming off of a very successful Laborfest celebration, the Milwaukee Area Labor Council is holding a townhall meeting to discuss the issue of Right to Work laws.

AFSCME District Council 48's executive director, Boyd McCamish, will be speaking about the origins of this piece of offal and its dark history in southern states.  The discussion will also include a review of some of the tactics and ideas the national RTW committee use to distort and lie to workers and how to respond to them.

This meeting is open to the public.  It will be held on Wednesday, September 3rd, at 6:30 pm at the Juneau Complex (formerly Juneau High School), located at 6415 W. Mt. Vernon Avenue.

Please help spread the word about this meeting.

See you there!

  1. Won't happen in the lame-duck session. Because Neal Kedzie quit to be a lobbyist, the count is only 17-15 GOP. Schultz and Ellis would both have to vote for right-to-freeload, and given that both were mistreated by Walker and that both are quitting as if January, they'll both tell Walker and company to screw themselves.

    Which means Walker and the GOPs can only try it if they're still in the Senate majority in 2015, and if Walker is still governor. So do your part to make sure that doesn't happen, and tell others who may be interested.
