Rally for workers' rights at the Capitol on Saturday, February 28

Scores of AFT-Wisconsin members joined thousands of union members and community supporters at the state Capitol earlier this week to rally against Governor Scott Walker's latest attack on working Wisconsinites.  As the fight against so-called "right to work" continues, we'll be rallying at the Capitol again on Saturday, Feb. 28.  Join us on the State St. side of the Capitol square at noon to stand up for workers' rights!

Buses will be leaving from across Wisconsin on Saturday morning.  If you would like a seat on a bus, you must RSVP to the contact below - otherwise, you cannot be guaranteed a seat!  Bus details are developing, and this post will be continually updated with the latest information.
