“On Tuesday night, the hard work of countless union members paid off as Wisconsin elected Rebecca Dallet to Wisconsin’s Supreme Court and elected pro-union candidates up and down the ballot all across the state,” said Phil Neuenfeldt, President of the Wisconsin AFL-CIO. “Working families have been knocking on neighbor’s doors and calling fellow union brothers and sisters to spread the word on endorsed candidates and educate why Rebecca Dallet is the best choice for Wisconsin’s Supreme Court. This victory for working people is one step in our continued fight to unrig an economic and political system that is stacked against working people.”

“Tonight’s election results show that Wisconsinites want to put a check on Gov. Scott Walker and signals a shift in Wisconsin as momentum continues to build for candidates who run on platforms of protecting the rights of the people not the wants of corporate special interests,” said Stephanie Bloomingdale, Secretary-Treasurer of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO. “The Wisconsin labor movement’s activism and mobilization will continue throughout 2018 as we work to lift up candidates who fight for working people and protect the freedom to collectively bargain.”
