Labor Attorney Irwin Aronson Interviewed on The Rick Smith Show about a Pennsylvania Public Education and Student Advocates Victory

December 14, 2011

A coalition of public and private sector unions, the Pennsylvania American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (PA AFL-CIO) and public education and student advocates successfully halted a last minute legislative effort in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives to create a taxpayer funded private school tuition voucher program, expand taxpayer funded charter schools and quadruple big business Educational Improvement Tax Credits (EITC).

Willig, Williams & Davidson Partner, Irwin Aronson, was interviewed by Rick Smith of The Rick Smith Show from the Pennsylvania State Capitol minutes after the vote in the PA House of Representatives. Aronson was on the scene as the rapidly moving legislative action unfolded providing state constitution analysis, legislative review, strategic guidance, understandings of the legislative body's operating rules and debate suggestions on behalf of the PA AFL-CIO, American Federation of Teachers Pennsylvania (AFT PA) and the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers during the legislative battle. Unlike in Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan and several other states, the reasoned voice of working families prevailed in Pennsylvania. Willig, Williams & Davidson is pleased to have been a part of this history making effort.
