Rally for collective bargaining supporters
Maryland supporters of collective bargaining rights are holding a rally to show support for state employees in Wisconsin.
The rally is scheduled for noon in Annapolis on Lawyers Mall on Saturday next to the Maryland State House and the governor's residence. The event is being described as a national day of action held in tandem with other events in all 50 state capitals.
Cindy Barracca, a regional coordinator for MoveOn.org, says the rally is being held to show solidarity with Wisconsin state workers.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is pushing for legislation that would strip state workers of their right to collectively bargain benefits and work conditions.
