Mobilizing for Legislative Action
Claudine Wilkins-Chambers and Donna Monroe of Local 3429 talk to State Rep. Toni Walker (New Haven).
On May 2, nearly 200 members packed the State Capitol for our annual Council 4 Lobby Day. We heard from Gov. Malloy and several state legislators, and then fanned out to talk to our legislators about bills such as the minimum wage hike and the pension task force.
The legislative season concluded on May 9 with a flurry of activity, much of it centered around the education reform legislation. We were able to get legislators to address many of our priorities in the meantime.
