The CEA and AFT are joining forces to make sure Senate Bill 24 results in true education reform!
After making enormous positive changes to Senate Bill 24, those opposed to public education and collective bargaining are pushing back with advertising and political pressure. The legislature will end its session May 9, and the time to have our voice heard will soon come to an end. We need to push back before it is too late. That is why the AFT CT and CEA are holding a series of rallies at the state capital from Monday, April 23- Wednesday, April 25. CEA affiliates will rally on April 23, and AFT and CEA will rally together throughout the afternoon on April 24 and 25, with buses arriving at staggered times to prevent a transportation bottleneck.
Two buses will leave Bristol Eastern High School on Tuesday, April 24 at about 4:30 PM, and return about 7:30 PM. Teachers interested in participating should tell a steward or officer in their building, who will then notify the BFT on Monday, April 23 of the exact number of participants. The steward will need your name and cell phone number (in case of a last minute change).
Buses are available from other locations in the state. To register for another bus, call the AFT CT office at (860) 257 9782
