Are you outraged by the treatment of the Utah nurse who was recently abused and unjustly arrested for simply doing her job? While the nation has reacted with understandable shock, health professionals like us know this type of workplace violence is all too common.
We have laws in Connecticut to address safety challenges in hospitals and health facilities, but we aren't using them the way we need to. Staff from our national union will be on-hand later this month for a workshop on how to change this — and you are invited:
WHEN: Monday, September 25 from 5:30 to 7:30PM.
WHERE: The Soifer Conference Room at AFT Connecticutheadquarters, located at 35 Marshall Road in Rocky Hill (plenty of free parking available).
HOW: RSVP by September 20 -- refreshments will be served so please let us know if you will be there so we can plan accordingly.
Join us in four weeks to learn more about how, as professionals we can advocate for ourselves — and as union members, empower ourselves — to achieve safe and healthy workplaces.
