When: Tuesday, Oct 13, 2020, 9:00am - 9:30am

William Backus Hospital
326 Washington Street

Join AFT-CT members and supporters to "walk the line" with Backus Hospital caregivers on strike over unfair labor practices by facility management and executives with Hartford HealthCare (HHC).

This rally on the first day of picketing will bring together health professionals, patients, families and advocates to "back us, back our nurses."

Backus Federation of Nurses members have been seeking a successor agreement for their now-expired contract with HHC and hospital management. While they would rather be at the bedside caring for patients, they cannot allow unfair labor practices to stand.
Social distancing and face masks will be required.
Note - parking is available on side streets near Chelsea Parade Park, located at 212 Washington Street (less than half a mile from the hospital).

Note: If you can't attend the Oct. 13 rally, you can show your support for the workers by walking the picket line any time between 7 a.m. on Oct. 13 and no later than 7 a.m. on Oct. 15.
