Brothers and Sisters: The attached link is an article that was in the New York Times Magazine on June 14, 2015. Please take the time to read this article. What is happening in Wisconsin can happen in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. In fact the Republicans in all three states covered in Local 5's jurisdiction have already begun the attack on unions.

The Presidential campaign has started, we all need to educate ourselves on the candidates and support the candidates that oppose right to Work laws and anti-union laws, our livelihood depends on it.

In Wisconsin, where the labor movement took root a century ago, a campaign by the governor has broken its power. His political allies hope he can take the same campaign nationwide.
