The headline reads “Case could rewrite corporate law in Wisconsin” and arguments before the Wisconsin State Supreme Court begin this week.
Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce has already made it known how it would like the Wisconsin Supreme Court to rule.
And who can forget the millions of dollars WMC spent supporting corporate-friendly and ethically-challenged judges Michael Gableman and Annette Ziegler?
It’s time WMC-backed justices Gableman and Ziegler remove themselves from ruling on this case. Click here to demand Justices Ziegler and Gableman recuse from the Virnich and Moores case.
In 2006, A jury ordered the owners of Communications Products Corporation, Daniel Virnich and Jack Moores, pay $6.5 million in damages after the pair took over $10 million from the company as they drove it into the ground. Dozens of workers were out of jobs when the company went under, and Communications Products Corp. refused to fulfill its union contract and pay workers their due. All the while, Virnich and Moores continued to collect huge payments from the company.
Click here to demand that Justices Gableman and Ziegler recuse from the Virnich and Moores case. Justices Ziegler and Gableman cannot be allowed to bring more dishonor to the Supreme Court.
When WMC gets its way, it means fewer rights for workers and more breaks for corporations. Labor lawyers have said that allowing owners like Virnich and Moores to get rich on the backs of workers would “weaken future collective bargaining agreements and companies’ duties to meet their obligations.”
Please take just a moment and sign on to the petition demanding Gableman and Ziegler recuse themselves. But don’t just sign — get five friends to sign too. Together, we’ll stand strong with our workers and fight back against the corporate greed of WMC.
