PPCU Recertification Election: Stand Up For Our Union & Our Rights

PPCU Members Brian Virgin and Patti Schaller pledge to vote "Union Yes!"

Governor Walker does not want workers like you to have a say in your workplace. His controversial Wisconsin Act 10 strips public employee unions of their right to collectively bargain over all working conditions, except for wages, where any increases could not exceed the cost of inflation.

Now we have an opportunity to send Governor Walker and the Wisconsin legislature a clear message with our very first recertification election – that public employees support and want a labor union.  We know that our State works best when we say “UNION Yes!”

This was never about balancing the budget; this was an all-out attack to silence the voices of working families in Wisconsin. Unions work night and day to promote better conditions for all healthcare workers through safer staffing, better pay, improved scheduling and a voice in the decisions that affect the quality of care we provide. Starting today, we have the opportunity to protect our union that fought for and won many of the privileges we enjoy today: wage increases, benefit package, limits on mandatory overtime, basic workplace fairness and equity, and safe staffing levels.   We need to make sure that we continue to fight to preserve what we have. Take the online pledge to vote “Union Yes!”
