Stand With Wisconsin

 

Dear Sisters and Brothers:

Support for Wisconsin’s workers in the face of Governor Scott Walker’s unprecedented assault on collective bargaining rights is streaming in from across the globe.
There have been demonstrations of solidarity in state capitals across the nation.
Now, union brothers and sisters in countries around the world are also staging rallies in support of Wisconsin’s workers.
Many international union leaders have also sent letters of concern to Governor Walker. Here’s a sample:
