Wisconsin “gerrymandering” case now before the US Supreme Court

A case that has the potential to bring about more fairness in legislative elections  in Wisconsin and across the nation is now being heard by the US Supreme Court.  

Excellent news has been announced today regarding the new Dane County Parental Leave Benefit.  In recent months our locals (2634, 1871, 720, 705 and 65) have discussed and requested a new paid leave benefit to help employees with new parental responsibilities. 

Today, we joined Executive Parisi and Dane County Board members in celebrating the public announcement that the requested benefit will be added to the 2018 Dane County Budget and will be included in our 2018 benefit package.

Brothers and Sisters,

During the last few months, there have been many conversations about Council 32’s shift from a “service mindset” to an “organizing mindset.” At the last Executive Board meeting, the Board voted to begin rapidly shifting to an organizing mindset. 

This change to an organizing mindset is overdue and necessary if we are going to be an effective and sustainable organization.

Inside The Wisconsin Veterans Home At King

 The thermometer hits 95 degrees and storms are rolling across Wisconsin. Winds are high and the rain is coming down thick and fast. And then, it happens, all the lights go out.

Losing power during a storm isn’t something new, but at King Veterans Home, located near Waupaca, WI, the loss of power created a situation that pushed an already overworked staff to the breaking point.
