X. Council 5 Field Representative and President emeritus Scott Grefe “Big Thank You to the local for supporting Wisconsin.” “Minnesota Legislators have been emboldened by Scott Walker’s victory in Wisconsin, and will still try to push “Right to Work” for less. The November election is very important and it’s not a Democrat vs. Republican vote. It’s voting for who supports the public sector.” “Look at the tentative contract agreement at www.union404.com. Council 5 is recommending a “YES” vote on this agreement. Voting is going to be held July 23-27th, with exact times to be posted.”
