About Us


Connecticut’s communities never rest. Streets need cleaning. Families need care. Students deserve well-run schools, and our neighborhoods demand safety. 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.

AFSCME Local 1303 believes that every person working to sustain their community deserves respect. Our union represents 7,000 local government workers across Connecticut. We plow roads and clean up your streets and parks. We help educate your children as paraprofessionals and school personnel. We make public libraries a place to learn and grow. We keep your schools clean and safe. And so much more.

Local 1303 members provide the vital services that make Connecticut happen, and we believe everyone deserves a chance to fulfill the American dream. We are part of Council 4 AFSCME, the voice of 35,000 workers across Connecticut. We are also part of the 1.6 million member AFSCME International, one of the nation’s leading advocates for working women and men. 

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 Local 1303. Learn more and join us.
