May 17 - the BIG rally

August 25, 2023

Community college faculty, staff, students, and our allies are ready to demonstrate to state decision-makers that we will not sit idly by as they gut public higher education; allow childcare workers, long-term care workers, and paraeducators to continue in poverty wages without health benefits; ignore teaching and other staffing crises; and allow our neediest residents to continue without critical services.

# Neutral Arbitrator Rules in Favor of State Employees in Pandemic Pay Arbitration

March 9, 2023

Since the very first day of Governor Lamont’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” emergency declaration, essential on-site state workers risked their lives and the lives of their families, as well as their physical and mental health to deliver core public services for Connecticut residents and businesses.  In the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, we worked with state officials to try to keep workplaces as safe as humanly possible during a global public health emergency. In recent months, the labor and management have turned to pandemic pay to provide a tangible recognition for the dedication and sacrifices essential on-site workers made during the height of the virus’s impact.

February 21, 2023

In the last few weeks, we heard from several faculty after meetings at the campuses related to department structures resulted in misinformation. In these campus meetings, at least 2 deans reported every campus needed to have six departments and six department chairs. That is incorrect.

Education Justice National Town Hall: March 18

February 16, 2023

Across our states, many of us are essential workers who serve our communities, educate our children, and so many other services essential to making our communities safe and healthy. These are essential public services every community needs. Our work makes our cities run and our taxes fund our communities. So why do our schools and child care system continue to be underfunded?
