About Us


AFSCME Local 269 is affliated with Council 4 in New Britain and AFSCME International in Washington, DC. We are part of the P-2 Bargaining Unit, which is comprised of three locals - Local 269, Local 714 and Local 2663 and represent  members in the State of Connecticut Department of Labor, Veteran's Affair and Worker's Compensation Rehabilitation Services Division.  America’s communities never rest that’s why people who work in public service never stop. This isn’t just a job. It’s a calling. The work matters because it means something to make a community better.  Our members are highly skilled individuals who are commited to providing necessary services to help Connecticut workers. 

Our members work handling thousands of claims from Connecticut citizens out of work filing for Unemployment Insurance benefits. In the Job centers we create or critique resumes, provide career couseling, facilitate training and skill development workshops that aid unemployed workers and provide job rerferrals and recruitments that help individuals obtain employment.  We ensure the distribution of Unemployment Insuance benefits to separated workers, according to federal and state laws, at the administrative through the appeallate level.  Local 269 members are also tasked to recover unpaid wages and ensure compliance of prevailing wage and workplace standard laws. We also serve the Veteran population with case management, provide veterans and thier families with links to available benefit and service programs and we assist them in finding suitable work.

AFSCME believes that every person working to sustain their community deserves respect. As part of the AFL-CIO, AFSCME is one of the nation’s leading advocates for working women and men. Our 1.6 million members provide the vital services that make America happen, and we believe everyone deserves a chance to fulfill the American dream.

AFSCME is the union that honors solidarity without conformity, drawing each member’s story into a force of experience and commitment that can’t be ignored. That’s how we win better lives for ourselves, our families, and our communities. For people proudly committed to public service, we never quit.

We are AFSCME, join us.
