Wisconsin State AFL-CIO Statement on Act 10 Ruling:

"As we have said from day one, Scott Walker's attempt to silence the union men and women of Wisconsin's public sector was an immoral, unjust and illegal power grab," said Phil Neuenfeldt, President of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO.  "Now, a court has ruled that the essential provisions of Act 10, Scott Walker's draconian attack on public worker's right to collectively bargain, is unconstitutional." 

"This is a good day for Wisconsin's working people and the union movement," said Stephanie Bloomingdale, Secretary-Treasurer of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO.  "When workers choose to join together for mutual aid and protection, their employer should honor their choice, come to the table and discuss wages and working conditions."
