34th Annual Conference attracts huge crowd to discuss ways to fight bac

The Madison Labor Temple was packed with 140 participants at the 34th Annual Conference of the Wisconsin Labor History Society, entitled “Building Worker Power in an Era of Anti-Union Assaults: Looking Back, Looking Forward,” on Saturday, April 11.

Much of the conference focused on recent efforts to weaken unions, such as Wisconsin’s Act 10 that took away most collective bargaining rights of public employees and current efforts to pass open shop laws in the state (often erroneously referred to as “right-to-work” legislation).  A full report on the conference is available by clicking here.
