Blow the whistle on contracting out - take action online!

They’re at it again in the special session of the Legislature. They’re trying to take away our rights. This time it’s our contracting out rights.

It’s time to blow the whistle on contracting out!

In the rush to get a budget agreement, legislators may decide to throw the services you provide under the bus – and hand them over to the same corporations that already get billions in state tax breaks.

We all know what’s happening in Wisconsin. Well, if we don’t act here, the same type of attacks could grow here. We could see the erosion of our bargaining rights over contracting out of your jobs.

It’s not right. 

We’ve sacrificed enough. We shouldn’t have to see our jobs privatized, contracted out and outsourced without any ability to show we can do it better, faster and cheaper. 

It’s time to blow the whistle on contracting out in the special session. If we don’t draw the line here, they’ll move on to Transportation, Corrections, parks and on and on. 


NOTE: If you have examples of fouled-up contracting out, please add these details to your email letter.
