WISCONSIN WORKERS HELP JAPAN

In response to the tragic events in Japan, the more than 65,000 Wisconsin workers represented by AFSCME Councils 24, 40 and 48 are donating $50,000 to an earthquake relief fund established by RENGO, Japan’s trade union confederation on behalf of all AFSCME members nationwide.

“Even as our members are facing great stress from being singled out as scapegoats for our state’s budgetary problems, their true nature shows though,” says Marty Beil, executive director of the Wisconsin State Employees Union, Council 24.
