The Real Truth About Government Spending

See why the spending vs. taxes debate is largely meaningless and how the real runaway spending is not in programs like Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security – but in a tax code that disproportionately benefits corporations and the super rich.


Our 5,000 Strong campaign aims to harness the strength of the more than 5,000 UWHC employees who currently have union representation. Union members at U.W. Hospital and Clinics (UWHC) are joining together to protect patients and protect workers.  UWHC’s top-rated care is threatened by state law changes that could destroy collective bargaining and undermine longstanding rights and relationships – unless we pull together now.


This week the administration at UWHC is sponsoring Employee Appreciation Week at the work sites.

We will also be attending some of those work sites asking that the employer appreciate the workers enough to maintain their worker rights.

To do that we will be leafleting several of the events.

It would be great if you could join your fellow workers, SEIU and AFSCME leadership in asking the employer to express their appreciation by maintaining worker rights.

The planned events are as follows:

June 20, 2013 - West Clinic

451 Junction Road
11:00am to 01:00pm

June 21, 2013 – UW Hospital and Clinics – Special Guest – SLY from 93.7!
600 Highland Ave
11:00am – 02:00pm

We Are Wisconsin, the Movie

We Are Wisconsin, directed by Wisconsin native Amie Williams, does not rely on pundits, experts, or labor leaders, but rather presents the story through the powerful voice of ordinary citizens.  The film follows the day to day unfolding of the public outcry against Walker’s bill, providing an inspiring testament to the power of citizen activism and the Wisconsin movement.

“This film will be the record people will refer to a hundred years from now when they study this era of greed,” said documentary filmmaker Michael Moore.
