In observance of Labor Day, the American Rights at Work Education Fund publicizes successful union and management partnerships in its fifth annual Labor Day List, titled, "Partnerships that Work."

New Berlin-based Wisconsin Vision Inc. was recognized on the list for its dedication to providing sustainable wages and family-friendly benefits, and for respecting workers’ rights and decisions to form unions.

"Labor Day List employers like Wisconsin Vision show that productive labor relations benefit workers, their families, and the company’s bottom line," said Kimberly Freeman, acting executive director of the American Rights at Work Education Fund. "Without a doubt, economic success does not have to come at the expense of workers’ rights. That’s why we chose to showcase companies that have demonstrated their unyielding support for the Employee Free Choice Act, which is fundamental to rebuilding our economy and empowering workers to achieve the American Dream."

Wisconsin Vision, like all of the companies featured in the report, supports the Employee Free Choice Act, legislation that makes it easier for workers to form and join labor unions.

"If our employees are happy and knowledgeable, they are going to have a great interaction with patients," said Darren Horndasch, president of Wisconsin Vision. "That’s great for business because it builds relationships with our patients."
