Our Teamster brothers from Local 200 were on the radio this morning telling Milwaukee about
A Madison radio icon, John "Sly" Sylvester (Sly in the Morning), had brought his pro-union radio program to Milwaukee's historic 3rd Ward. That's deep in Recall Territory, where Sandy Pasch is campaigning against Sen. Alberta Not-so-Darling for the Aug. 9 recall election. (Teamsters endorsed Pasch.)
At 6 a.m., Local 200's Secretary-Treasurer Tom Millonzi and Business Representatives Randy Monroe and Steve Nelson joined Sly for the "Solidarity with Milwaukee" broadcast on on 1670 AM WTDY.
Millonzi provided the listening audience a dissertation on the effects of WI Act 10 on the workers in Wisconsin and the upcoming recall elections.Sly has been outspoken in criticizing some Democrats for downplaying the issue of collective bargaining in the recall races. Here's what he had to say:
Sandy Pasch was also on the broadcast. We understand our brothers and sisters in Milwaukee are working hard for her to unseat Darling. Pasch has overcome a 9-point-deficit and is now neck-and-neck with Darling.
Nelson tells us Pasch enlightened the radio audience on her views of Gov. Walker’s Union Busting Movement.
We'll try to get some sound from the broadcast.
