More than 100 people in Bend came out on Tuesday to show their support for workers rights and specifically Wisconsin Public Workers who have had their collective bargaining rights taken away. Deschutes County Commissioner Alan Unger was one of the speakers at the downtown rally: “The union helps us to speak with one voice. I think we need two voices, there are two sides. We need to be supporting our employees and we have to be fair and that takes two sides to make that fair.” Wisconsin abolished collective bargaining for State workers in an effort to balance its budget and union workers fear other states will attempt to do that as well.
