Ron Johnson AWOL on fight for hometown jobs
APPLETON, Wis. – Outagamie County Executive and pro-labor populist U.S. Senate candidate Tom Nelson is applauding the USPS for expanding their order on electric vehicles and is demanding once again they be made in Oshkosh with union labor. Oshkosh Defense was awarded the original contract to build the next generation of postal vehicles, but has said they will be building them in non-union South Carolina.
“I applaud the USPS for this, but those vehicles need to be 100% electric and they need to be made with UAW labor here in Oshkosh. USPS needs to think twice about this contract if Oshkosh Defense insists on building the vehicles in non-union South Carolina when it was Wisconsin workers’ superb manufacturing base that got them the contract in the first place. I wish Ron Johnson would actually care to fight for his hometown workers, but he has shown his priorities are anything but the Wisconsin worker.”
