Wisconsin Labor Unions Endorse Burke for Governor
Some involved in Wisconsin politics are questioning union bosses’ endorsement of Mary Burke for governor. At least those teachers who do not agree with the Wisconsin Education Action Council’s (WEAC) endorsement will not have to pay for it with forced dues. Nyall Muennuddin has the story in the Wisconsin Badger-Herald.
As the race for governor draws closer, three of Wisconsin’s top public employee labor unions endorsed Democrat Mary Burke in her challenge against Gov. Scott Walker.
Shortly after the unions’ announcement, the Republican Party of Wisconsin pointed out the unions now endorsing the candidate, which include the Wisconsin Education Association Council, AFL-CIO and Madison Teachers Inc., have criticized Burke in the past.
