One of the Koch brothers front-groups, the union-busting group National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, is rolling their tanks into Wisconsin to defend against a lawsuit from Dane County Firefighters and other public employee unions challenging the constitutionality of Walker's union-busting bill.
A 4/26 NRWLDF letter sent to numerous rightwing leaders in Wisconsin, said:
"Dear Right to Work Supporter:
As you may know, three Madison local AFL-CIO unions, Laborers Local 236, Firefighters Local 311, and AFSCME Local 60, have sued the State of Wisconsin and Governor Walker to have the courts declare unconstitional the "budget repair bill," 2011 Wisconsin Act 10. This is an attempt to reverse the decision of the legislature to repeal compulsory unionism for most public sector employees.
