Council 4 Lobby Day 2019
AFSCME Green could be seen throughout the State Capitol in Hartford on May 22, as 200 members and retirees participated in our annual Legislative Lobby Day. We heard from several state legislators on the issues impacting workers, presented our PEOPLE Person of the Year Award to Ronda Charette (Local 610) and Steve Wierbicki (Local 269) and were inspired by Keri Hoehne of UFCW Local 371, representing Stop & Shop workers who successfully went out strike; and our good friend, CT AFL-CIO President Sal Luciano. Union members also fanned out to lobby legislators on issues ranging from support for our Local 749 contract agreement to the proposed paid family and medical leave bill to increasing taxes on the wealthy.
