PRESS RELEASE: AFL-CIO reacts to Barrett nomination


"From day one, the movement to restore democracy to Wisconsin has been about the people of Wisconsin who want to put an end to Gov. Walker's extreme and radical attacks on working people," said Phil Neuenfeldt, President of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO.  "The people of Wisconsin have chosen Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett to take on Scott Walker on June 5.  We know that Tom Barrett will be a strong advocate for working people.  In the next four weeks we will make sure that every working person in Wisconsin understands that recalling Scott Walker is about preserving a strong middle class.  On June 5, the people of Wisconsin will stop Gov. Walker's job-killing policies which reward out-of-state corporate millionaires at the expense of Wisconsin families."  

"Tom Barrett is fully committed to restoring collective bargaining rights for public employees," said Stephanie Bloomingdale, Secretary-Treasurer of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO.  "The momentum for working people is picking up steam all across the state and the enthusiasm to reclaim Wisconsin has never been higher.  Now, union members and community members are going to get down to the hard work of talking with their friends and neighbors about the June 5 election. "
