Working America: In Connecticut, Working For Us

We have exciting news to report. An organization known as Working America, which is the community affiliate of the national AFL-CIO, has embarked on a union member mobilization program in Connecticut.

Working America is chaired by AFSCME President Lee Saunders and unites non-union and union members around common issues of concern. Their mission is to make sure that the priorities of working people, their families and communities are heard from our state houses to the White House, from our city councils and school boards to the halls of Congress.

Working America representatives are canvassing in our Connecticut neighborhoods. They want to speak with Council 4 members like you about your views on union membership, the importance of the 2018 election cycle and the AFSCME PEOPLE program.

Please give Working America a few minutes of your time if one of their representatives visits you. This is an opportunity to share your views with an organization that believes strong unions and the right to bargain collectively are critical to a fair economy.
