        For Immediate Release Contact: Karen Hickey, 414-573-7579, khickey@wisaflcio.org Workers from All Sectors Join Together to Stop Right to Work Solidarity Press Conference As the Senate takes up an extraordinary session to rush through anti-worker Right to Work legislation, workers from both the public and private sector are coming together for a solidarity press conference at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, February 23 in Senate Room B of the Concourse Hotel in Madison, to say Right to Work is wrong for Wisconsin. Right to Work is wrong for our communities, small businesses and all working people. Right to Work is not the way we do things in Wisconsin. It cripples our fundamental right to join together, stick together and have a meaningful voice in the workplace: We have a tradition here in Wisconsin of strong communities who take care of one another. Right to Work means we won’t have the freedom to “have each other’s backs” and bargain with our employers as we see fit. WHAT: Solidarity Press Conference WHEN: 11:00 a.m. Monday, February 23 WHERE: Senate Room B, Concourse Hotel, 1 W. Dayton St, Madison, WI 53703 ###

          Two screenings only -- Wednesday, Feb. 11 at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 15 at 5:30 p.m. An acclaimed documentary feature exploring the extraordinary journey of the Reuther brothers - Walter, Roy, and Victor - prolific labor statesman whose social justice movement, under the banner of the United Auto Workers union, transformed the landscape of a nation. Directed by Victor's grandson, Sasha, and narrated by Martin Sheen, the film is an in-depth study of one family's rise from auto plant organizers in 1930s Detroit to leaders in collective bargaining, Civil Rights activism, and international labor solidarity. Behind the dramatic headlines of picket line conflict, assassination attempts, heated Senate hearings, and inter-union power struggles, lies a stirring personal story of determination, sacrifice, triumph, and tragedy. This influential and often controversial 40-year crusade would contribute to lifting millions of workers to a middle-class living and compel American democracy to live up to its promise of equality.

            Right to work, minimum and prevailing wage laws, collective bargaining, economic development.
