STATEMENT BY NBPA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR BILLY HUNTER AND FIRST VICE PRESIDENT KEYON DOOLING IN OPPOSITION TO WISCONSIN ASSEMBLY ANTI-UNION BILL.

New York, February 25, 2011 -- “Last night’s vote by the Wisconsin Assembly was an attempt to undermine organized labor and the men and women across the country who depend on their unions for a voice in the workplace. The NBPA proudly supports our brothers and sisters in Wisconsin and their stand for unequivocal collective bargaining rights.” – Billy Hunter, NBPA Executive Director


“Wisconsin public-sector workers tirelessly deliver services on a daily basis to millions of Wisconsin residents. The right of these hard-working men and women to organize and bargain collectively is fundamental. Wisconsin’s workers deserve better than last night’s vote.
