Expressing the will of the House of Delegates in supporting the Wisconsin state employees, the employees of the University of Wisconsin System, teachers K thru 12, the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics Authority, and the home care and child health care providers that will be affected by legislation introduced by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.
Whereas, Madison, Wisconsin has become the site of enormous demonstrations in opposition to Governor Walker’s legislation, which is an unfortunate proposal that would be detrimental to thousands of hard-working Wisconsin citizens employed by their municipalities, public schools and universities providing educational opportunity and vital services; and
Whereas, Public employees are instrumental to the operations of state, local and municipal governments by providing a tireless work ethic and long hours for below average salaries; and
Whereas, Public employees are the workforce that provides public services to the general public and are not always recognized for their contributions to society in general; and
Whereas, From services related to education, care for the elderly and the physical and mentally impaired, child protective services, the judicial system, veterans’ benefits, police and fire protection, to public health, public employees are the driving force for these services; therefore, be it
Resolved by the House of Delegates:
That the West Virginia House of Delegates supports the Wisconsin state employees, the employees of the University of Wisconsin System, teachers K thru 12, the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics Authority, and the home care and child health care providers that will be affected by legislation introduced by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the West Virginia House of Delegates acknowledges, despite these hard economic times, the great value and worth of municipal, public school, university, and state employees; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Clerk of the House of Delegates forward a certified copy of this resolution to Council 24 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees in Madison, Wisconsin, to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, to the President and Speaker of the Wisconsin Legislature and to all labor unions in West Virginia.
