Wisconsin Unions Vote to Prepare a General Strike
The Internationalist
We have said repeatedly during the last several days that while it’s clear that the union supporters had the numbers and the union-busting bill does not have popular backing, this would not stop this governor hell-bent on destroying the unions. The Internationalist Group leaflet stated that “There should be an immediate statewide public workers strike to sink the anti-labor bill, and it needs to rapidly spread to all sectors of labor to shut Wisconsin down.” We added: “It will take nothing less than a statewide general strike to defeat labor hater Walker.” Now others are taking this up. During the day on Sunday signs and leaflets began appearing at the Capitol calling for a general strike in Madison, a one-day strike of all Wisconsin public workers and other variants. And on Monday evening we began hearing reports that local union officials were talking about a general strike, which is something that hasn’t happened in the U.S. in decades.
