Patrick pledges Massachusetts will not follow Wisconsin's lead on collective bargaining
By Jim Cryns
MILWAUKEE -- Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick pledged Saturday that his home state will not follow Wisconsin’s lead in rolling back collective bargaining rights for public employees.
“It’s not happening on my watch,” the Dem guv declared at the Democratic Party of Wisconsin’s Founders Day Dinner. The line prompted the loudest cheer from the crowd during Patrick’s keynote speech.
“We believe in the right to organize and bargain collectively,” Patrick said. “I will not let Massachusetts be a pawn in the effort to undermine collective bargaining and the right to organize.”
