A week celebrating educators, healthcare, and public servants

AFT is a "Union of Professionals", and represents education, health care, and public service workers. I like to call it a union of caregivers.

It is fitting that this week is Teacher Appreciation Week, National Nurses Week and Public Service Recognition Week, celebrating teachers, paraprofessionals and others who work in education, nurses, techs and other healthcare workers, and all who work in public service. 

All three groups are important and together we make up what is AFT.
I am proud that the PLANs ticket for AFT Connecticut officers includes Jan Hochadel's teaching experience, my healthcare experience, and Jean Morningstar's years of helping state workers and includes experience in both private and public sector unions.

Thank you to all our members for your service to your communities every day.
