|We Make Connecticut Happen|
A Sea of AFSCME Green
Corrections Local 391 members were among hundreds of union members at the Capitol April 23.
The State Capitol in Hartford was awash in a sea of AFSCME green April 23 as Council 4 members made their voice heard as one during our annual legislative lobby day.
Members lobbied their legislators on a number of important issues, such as expanding retirement security for all, stopping unfair increases to the municipal pension system, including post traumatic stress disorder coverage under workers' compensation, establishing community and worker protections for private hospital conversions, designing a curriculum for labor education in our schools, and granting probate court employees the right to organize.
Be sure to contact your legislators today and urge them to pass SB 249, which would provide retirement security for all workers.
