Some guidance from AFT CT on how we can harness the power of our collective voice at legislative hearings.


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!


Resolve to Make a Better Life for All in 2024

This video message from AFT CT President Jan Hochadel says it all about what we face in 2024. Please take five minutes to watch:


Wanted: Members in patient-care positions to represent UHP on the UConn Health Employee Safety and Health Committee (informally known as the worker's comp committee)

We are always looking for members who step up their involvement by joining a UHP committee or by representing UHP on UConn Health or affiliate committees. Find a committee that interests you and get in touch with the appropriate contact person -- Active members grow our union's power!



The May episode of the AFSCME Council 4 podcast "Council 4 Unplugged" covers the proposed UConn Health public-private partnership. Guests include Chris DeFrancesco, our vice president for communication. 

Take a listen!
