Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett appeared on The Ed Schultz Radio show today to talk about his upcoming recall campaign for the Democratic nomination, and potential campaign against Scott Walker.
Mayor Barrett left no doubt he would work to repeal the anti-collective bargaining law put in place by Republican Governor Scott Walker, saying:
In February of 2011, Scott Walker started a civil war here in the state of Wisconsin... and he did so by a surprise attack. Announcing -- and these are his words -- that he was going to drop the bomb. And what he meant by that is that he was going to go after the ability by public sector employees to collectively bargain in the state of Wisconsin.
Barrett noted Walker never mentioned his collective bargaining plans on the campaign trail. When asked if he would reinstate the collective bargaining laws, Barrett said:
I would reinstate collective bargaining rights. I think that people, including public sector employees, have the right to collectively bargain and the right to collectively organize, and I would certainly make that one of my priorities.
