Re: AFSCME WI 2019-2021 Budget Priorities Talking Points, Joint Finance Committee Hearings

Brothers & Sisters,

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States, has ruled against working people in a case titled Janus vs. AFSCME.

What Does This Case Ruling Mean?

This court case creates National Right To Work For Less in the public sector. Since we are already a Right To Work For Less state in Wisconsin, this case will have no impact here.

So, Why Are You E-mailing Me About This?

When he first took a job at the Centralia Correctional Center in Illinois, Keith Kracht knew that a career in public service wouldn’t make him a millionaire. But then again, that’s not why he went into public service.

AFSCME President Lee Saunders lashed out at the Trump administration after President Donald Trump signed a series of executive orders to make it easier to fire federal workers and weaken their unions.

On Sunday, AFSCME Wisconsin’s PEOPLE Committee, which is responsible for the union’s political activities, endorsed Mahlon Mitchell for Governor of Wisconsin.

In a crowded primary field, Mahlon’s commitment to working people stood out said Paul Spink, President of AFSCME Wisconsin.

"As a union leader, Mahlon has been standing with AFSCME since before ACT 10," said Spink. "AFSCME is thrilled to be supporting a candidate for Governor who understands the value of public service and who will be a powerful advocate for working people as our next Governor!"

Don't fall for the scam.
