AFSCME Local 60 - Municipal & School District Employees of Dane County

We Fight On

We want to tell you that we are all proud of the hard work, energy and heart that you have shown since Walker launched his attack on us. We responded with the biggest popular uprising in Wisconsin history, occupying and surrounding the state Capitol for weeks. In the process, you inspired a national movement.

AFSCME was born in Wisconsin nearly 80 years ago. We've been here long before this current crop of politicians and we will be here long after.

We existed and grew for many years without the kind of bargaining law that eventually assured decades of labor peace in Wisconsin. Even though Walker eviscerated that law, we will continue to fight for our members and for quality public services.

This struggle has energized a movement and built coalitions between public and private sector workers - union and non-union. Our movement is not going away. 

We know that with the kind of heart you’ve shown, that you will never give in to those who want to take us back to the Gilded Age of the robber barons and unfettered corporate power.

Yes, we are all disappointed in the recall results. While we lost an opportunity to elect a Governor who supports working families, together we returned a Democratic majority in the Wisconsin state senate.

But we’re also inspired. We’ve seen boundless creativity and commitment emerge in this most recent chapter of our long struggle. We’ve built new bridges and coalitions within our communities.

And with his $50 million campaign, Walker has made it very clear which side he is on.

Walker may have pulled out a momentary reprieve, but he’s paid a heavy price. And he’s revealed himself to be on the wrong side of history.

We are so proud to stand with you and the history you continue making. Thank you again for all you have done and for standing strong.

We fight on!
