Brothers and Sisters,
As you know, the workers of UAW Local 833 at Kohler have been on strike for over a week. On Sunday, November 15, workers took a strike vote with 94% voting to strike.
We, as labor brothers and sisters, must do our part to help them in their fight. We must stand strong in solidarity.
At issue, is a two-tier wage system.
At the Wisconsin AFL-CIO, we will keep you updated as things develop.
Thanksgiving is just two days away. Workers will be walking the picket line on Thanksgiving Day. It would be a great show of support to join them Thursday in solidarity.
These are things that we all can do to help our brothers and sisters at UAW Local 833.
Join the picket line anytime including Thanksgiving Day at the Clock Tower, 444 Highland Drive, Kohler, and stand in solidarity with the families of UAW Local 833.
