Statement on the Minnesota Supreme Court Ruling
"Today’s Minnesota Supreme Court ruling marks a victory for Minnesotans and workers across the country. Their votes have finally been counted and affirmed, and now Minnesotans are one step closer to having their voices fully represented in Congress.
Working families should be encouraged by the addition of Sen.-elect Franken to the growing pro-worker majority in the Senate. Yet the road ahead for issues of utmost concern to middle-class and working families is not an easy one.
Big Business will continue to be relentless in their attempt to block any change to a system that favors them. We must not back down in reminding our leaders that working families are counting on them to pass legislation such as the Employee Free Choice Act to create more opportunities in these tough economic times.
Now is the time to create real change and pass the Employee Free Choice Act so that workers can bargain, not borrow, their way back into the middle class.
We urge Gov. Tim Pawlenty to sign the election certificate so Sen.-elect Franken can get to work."
