AFSCME | Students and Labor: A Perfect Union

…. In this spirit, the United States Student Association (USSA) and AFSCME have come together to form a partnership to stop university budget cuts and strengthen the progressive student movement.… Because of that solidarity, USSA honored AFSCME as its Coalition Partner of the Year at its annual awards ceremony. AFSCME Sec.-Treas. Lee Saunders accepted the award on behalf of the union. He noted the group’s shared histories – past and present. Both USSA and AFSCME are celebrating anniversaries this year: their 65th, our 75th. Both USSA and AFSCME were born in Madison, Wis. And both USSA and AFSCME stood in the rotunda of the Madison Capitol last spring to protest Gov. Scott Walker’s attack on workers.
