Several specific events have been scheduled during next week’s legislative hearing on state lawmakers’ attempts to strip union members of our collective bargaining rights. One of the most important is a rally at 5:00PM — join us to help demonstrate that attacks on public employees are attacks on a voice for all working people:
  • WHEN: Friday, March 24, beginning at 10:00AM:
    • 10:30 – 11:30AM: public hearing testimony, meeting legislators;
    • 11:30AM: D.U.E. Justice Coalition press conference;
    • 12:00 – 4:30PM: public hearing testimony, meeting legislators;
    • 5:00PM: public service employees rally (outside, at Minuteman Park); &
    • 5:30 – Late Evening: public hearing testimony, meeting legislators.
  • WHERE: The Legislative Office Building (LOB), located next to the State Capitol in Hartford at 300 Capitol Avenue (contact your local union leadership for possible bus transportation).
  • HOW: Click here to sign-up to participate in one or more of the actions.
We hope to see you at the LOB next Friday — be sure to wear your AFT tee-shirt to show you’re “all in” to protect Connecticut’s quality of life for all our communities.
More to come, and in solidarity,
