With the situation in Wisconsin continuing, we urge you to sign the online petition that Mary Lindquist, WEA President has sent out to all members. Much as you may not think so, this is your fight, too. Saying, “It can’t happen here,” is not going to protect you from the union-busters that are here in our own state. Make your voice heard along with millions of other union members nationwide. I am reprinting Mary’s message here (you may have to copy and paste the links into your browser):
I know many of you are following the developments in Wisconsin. Let’s send our suppport of fellow teachers, nurses, firefighters and all public employees of Wisconsin who are fighting for their rights.
Please sign the national petition to support public educators and workers’ rights. Let your voice be heard.
And encourage others to do the same. The online petition is at www.educationvotes.nea.org/nationalpetition.
