Retired Teacher Lobby Day - NEW LOCATION

Date: 
Wed, 04/04/2018 - 10:00am - 2:00pm
Note: location change from originally scheduled.
 
Connecticut's largest teacher retiree organizations are teaming up for the fifth annual joint "Lobby Day for Retired Teachers." The Association of Retired Teachers of Connecticut (ARTC), the Connecticut Education Association- Retired (CEA-R), and the American Federation of Teachers-Retired (AFT-R) are working together to advocate for our past, present and future educators.
 
Retired union members will meet face-to-face with legislators to talk firsthand about the issues facing all teachers. It's an opportunity to address recently imposed policies, such as unilaterally increased pension contributions — a targeted teachers' tax — and a credit for retired educators rolled-back in 2017.
 
Agenda: 
  • 10:00am - Welcome & legislative briefing
    • Room 1-D in the Legislative Office Building (LOB)
