We Are All Egyptian Badgers!

A general strike has been called by Wisconsin’s South Central Federation of Labor, an umbrella organization for labor unions in Dane, Dodge, Sauk, Columbia, Jefferson and Iowa Counties. Currently there are over 97 labor organizations, representing more than 45,000 workers, affiliated with SCFL.

Motion 1: The SCFL endorses a general strike, possibly for the day Walker signs his “budget repair bill,” and requests the Education Committee immediately begin educating affiliates and members on the organization and function of a general strike.

Motion 2:  The SCFL goes on record as opposing all provisions contained in Walker’s “budget repair bill,” including but not limited to, curtailed bargaining rights and reduced wages, benefits, pensions, funding for public education, changes to medical assistance programs, and politicization of state government agencies.

The Egyptian Revolution is acknowledged as an inspiration for the uprising in Madison in this brief video.
