"We're disappointed in Tuesday's results but we're also inspired by the historic movement we've seen rise up through Wisconsin," said Rich Abelson, Executive Director of PSI-affiliated AFSCME Council.
The AFSCME President, Gerald W. McEntee, puts it this way:
"Although we didn’t win, Wisconsin’s working families sent a loud and clear message to anti-worker governors, and their shady corporate backers: Efforts to destroy the rights of workers, and our ability to have a voice on the job, will not go unchallenged. We will take them on, just as we did in Ohio, where we overturned John Kasich’s anti-collective bargaining bill, and in Florida, where we successfully stood up to Gov. Rick Scott’s efforts to privatize programs throughout the state."
