GREEN BAY – The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Wisconsin State Conference President Don Allen released the following statement in response to Governor Evers’ Budget Address:
“Once again, Governor Evers put Wisconsin workers and families first in his biennial budget proposal. From his initiatives on child care and education to worker training and economic development, this budget will help lead the way to post-pandemic recovery.
The IBEW State Conference especially recognizes the importance of reestablishing prevailing wage laws in Wisconsin, repealing the so-called “Right to Work” law and eliminating the prohibition on Project Labor Agreements put into place by the previous administration. The Governor’s proposals will protect Wisconsin workers and taxpayer funds from unscrupulous out of state contractors and help ensure the sustainability of Wisconsin’s proud construction industry for years to come.
We applaud Governor Evers for his leadership, his roadmap to recovery, and vision to move Wisconsin forward.“
