The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports today that Scott Walker and Republicans in the state legislature have hatched a scheme to weaken Wisconsin's civil service protections, which have prevented politicians from using government jobs as patronage for their supporters and from firing employees for political reasons for more than a century.
Walker thinks he can cripple our union by making payroll deduction for union dues illegal. By re-committing to our union and continuing membership, we are standing strong and sending a message: Walker can’t legislate away our union, he can’t decide that we don’t have power, he doesn’t decide – we do.
To join in building our union, click the button below and continue your union membership and our ability to fight Walker, his agenda and the stripping of our rights. You’ll be redirected to a secure website where you can sign up to continue your membership no matter what Walker says. This information is for union purposes only and will never be shared with an outside party. Deductions will only begin if payroll dues deduction is eliminated, and your information will be kept secure.
We can build our union and take back Wisconsin. It’s all up to us. Who decides? We decide!
