The AFL-CIO has never liked Wisconsin’s Republican Gov. Scott Walker. As The Post reported six years ago, Walker’s push to curtail collective bargaining rights for many public workers in his state led to a full mobilization of the country’s labor movement.
So in 2015, when Walker announced his presidential candidacy, AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka’s news release was short and to the point.
“Scott Walker is a national disgrace,” Trumka said at the time.
When Walker dropped out of the race several months later, Trumka amended his original statement, saying: “Scott Walker is still a disgrace, just no longer national.”
Early Wednesday, after Walker was denied a third term as governor, Trumka took aim once again.
