Iron County Progressive

From the State AFL-CIO
It was a historic night in Wisconsin. With all votes counted and record mid-term election turnout, Tony Evers won and is our new Governor with a recount proof margin.

It has been a long 8 years of anti-worker policies from Scott Walker who looked after big money donors, not the people.

Tony Evers’ win is a clear signal that Wisconsinites will not stand for attacks on workers’ rights and our freedom to collectively bargain. We look forward to working with the Evers Administration to restore union rights to every Wisconsin worker, raise wages, fully fund our schools and invest in infrastructure so that we can finally fix our roads and bridges.

A hearty congratulations to all our Wisconsin AFL-CIO endorsed candidates who won last night, including:

·         Senator Tammy Baldwin to U.S. Senate.

·         Josh Kaul our next Attorney General.

·         Sarah Godlewski State Treasurer.

Tony Evers and Mandela Barnes – we look forward to this new day for Wisconsin workers as we work together to restore worker rights and reclaim our Wisconsin progressive tradition.

Union members have been doing the grassroots work of lacing up our boots and having conversations on front porch steps, in the workplace, over the phone, and at the mail box to ramp up the union vote for pro-worker candidates. The ground work of labor activism made the difference Tuesday.

In Solidarity,

Stephanie Bloomingdale, President
Dennis Delie, Secretary-Treasurer
