MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Frontline workers were joined by state leaders for a union rally in Madison on Saturday, May 8.
Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers, Attorney General Josh Kaul, and Lieutenant Gov. Mandela Barnes were among the dozens of speakers voicing their support for nurses and their call for a union.
UW nurses have been demanding a union contract to address working condition concerns.
"All across the state from Kenosha to Superior, nurses have been showing up to work despite fear and anxiety," State Rep. Tim McGuire of Kenosha said. "Despite not having fully safe work places and equipment for you to be fully safe in your jobs and that took a lot of courage"
Nurses are vowing to ramp up their demand for a union voice in the coming weeks.
