See (and hear) highlights from our presence at the state Capitol Feb. 20, when we joined our UConn union siblings and even UConn leadership in demanding proper state investment in higher education.


Our lawmakers have a say in our future, and as public employees, that includes our labor contracts!

These meetings are a great opportunity to speak with our elected officials in casual, small group settings. It's a chance to let them know the issues that are important to you as a constituent and to working families in general.

Find the one near you, get a colleague to come along, and RSVP — let our lawmakers know we're paying attention, we have voices, and we vote!
