Just a quick reminder that the annual legislative conference is next Saturday at the State Capitol, where we want to be sure that your voice is heard:

WHEN: Saturday, February 25, from 9:00AM to 2:00PM (registration opens at 8:30AM).
WHERE: Legislative Office Building, located at 300 Capitol Avenue in Hartford (free, easy access parking is available in the adjacent garage).
It’s not too late to RSVP to attend, if you haven’t already.
The legislature’s budget-writing committee this week began holding hearings on the impact of proposed service cuts, so elected officials need to see a big crowd of union members. They need to hear firsthand from educators, healthcare professionals, higher education faculty, public employees, and retirees that there are better choices than painful austerity policies.
Hope to see you next Saturday at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford!
In solidarity,
