Election Night Statements

Statement from Wisconsin AFL-CIO President Stephanie Bloomingdale on Historic Election Night in Wisconsin

“Wisconsin voters have gone to the polls to reject Scott Walker’s union-busting style of politics and voted him out of office,” said Stephanie Bloomingdale, President of the Wisconsin AFL-CIO.  “Tony Ever’s victory is a clear signal that Wisconsinites will not stand for attacks on workers’ rights and our freedom to collectively bargain. We look forward to working with the Evers Administration to restore union rights to every Wisconsin worker, raise wages, fully fund our schools and invest in infrastructure so that we can finally fix our roads and bridges.”

“Union members have been doing the grassroots work of lacing up our boots and having conversations on front porch steps, in the workplace, over the phone, and at the mail box to ramp up the union vote for pro-worker candidates,” continued President Bloomingdale.  “The ground work of labor activism made the difference Tuesday.”

Statement from Wisconsin AFL-CIO President Stephanie Bloomingdale on the Re-Election of Tammy Baldwin to the U.S. Senate

Working people are proud to have gone to the polls to re-elect senator Tammy Baldwin. Union members have been hitting the streets, knocking on doors, making phone calls and talking in the workplace to re-elect a true champion for union families. From fighting bad trade deals, to enacting Buy American legislation and protecting good Wisconsin jobs– we know Tammy Baldwin will continue to stand up to the special interests and support the people of Wisconsin in Washington.
