WEAC Region 8, representing Wisconsin Technical College employees, has won all nine of its recertification elections.
Megan Kuehl, Lakeshore Technical College faculty member and President of Region 8 said the successful election result underscores the continued support educators have for their union. She stressed the combined efforts of technical college faculty members across the state in continuing to be a voice for their students.
“Our success in these elections validates the need and want of educators and support staff to have a collective voice and for that voice to continue to be respected at our colleges,” she said. “We’re not going away, and these elections simply prove that.”
