WI AFL-CIO statement on ruling


MADISON, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Following the federal ruling regarding Act 10, Wisconsin AFL-CIO president Phil Neuenfeldt released a statement:

This is a disappointing ruling for all workers in the state of Wisconsin. In America, workers have the right to join a union and with one stroke of his pen Gov. Walker decimated that right.  Act 10 always has and always will infringe upon a worker's right to collective bargaining and democracy in the workplace.  Gov. Walker's divide and conquer strategy is stagnating wages for all workers, furthering the income gap between the rich and the poor and swelling our state's jobs deficit.  Gov. Walker was elected to create jobs; instead he attacked workers' rights and Wisconsin's middle class.
