Wisconsin Day @ AFSCME Convention

On Tuesday, July 15 a bus of AFSCME Activists from Madison, Milwaukee and Racine rode to the AFSCME International Convention in Chicago, IL. We wore our red Wisconsin AFL-CIO shirts and stood on the stage to hear from our next Governor, Mary Burke. Tuesday was a great show of our solidarity and strength in Wisconsin. 

Some pictures are posted on the International's website at: www.2014.afscme.org/photos
