University of Wisconsin unions are reaching out to students and fellow workers to make sure they know they have rights on the job.
On a cold snowy Tuesday, members of the University Labor Council were out in front of the Helen C White Hall handing out leaflets and engaging students. ULC is a coalition of campus workers and labor unions committed to public education, workplace democracy, and our communities.
The Labor Council’s message “You have rights on the job!”
Labor Radio spoke with Harry Richardson, a member of AFSCME local 171 who described the action. AFSCME is a union that advocates for fairness in the workplace.
That was Harry Richardson speaking for the University Labor Council describing why they had been out in front of the Helen C White Hall for several weeks.
