Building a Union we can be proud of

Today I'd like to announce the launch of a new web site,
and group of leaders who are dedicated to the belief that the power of a union is in our collective voice. We are committed to ensuring that everyone's voice is heard and respected.

Our Guiding Principles and Goals:

I.     Membership First – The belief that the strength of AFT is in its members. AFT-CT’s leadership has an obligation to continually speak not only to the presidents of locals, but to their executive boards, and most importantly to the memberships.

II.   Communication & Collaboration – The belief that once the desires of the membership are understood, together we achieve more. This is only possible in a climate of respect.

III.  Transparency – The belief AFT-CT leadership has an obligation to make membership aware of the work being done. To be true to the movement, policies and practices must align.

IV. Organization – The belief that AFT-CT needs to identify the work that needs to be done should be outlined and prioritized in short-term and long-term plans.

We have assembled a slate of Officers and Executive Board Vice Presidents who believe in these principles and goals.
I am honored to be a part of this team.
