Wisconsin AFL-CIO President Stephanie Bloomingdale released the following statement as coalition of public sector workers file lawsuit challenging constitutionality of Wisconsin’s Act 10: 


“Wisconsin union members stand together in solidarity as a coalition of public sector employees bring forth a legal challenge to the constitutionality of Scott Walker’s union-busting Act 10,” said Wisconsin AFL-CIO President Stephanie Bloomingdale. “All Wisconsin workers have the right to collectively bargain with their employer over issues such as wages, workplace safety, benefits and more. Banning some workers from the full freedom to negotiate in union is a violation of the Wisconsin Constitution. Act 10 has done great harm to working people in our state and has done great damage to the public services our families depend on every day. It has lowered wages and led to staff shortages and long-term vacancies in key public service positions. Working families in Wisconsin will stand together to restore the full freedom of collective bargaining to every worker in our state.”
