Retired Teachers Lobby Day

Tue, 04/30/2019 - 10:00am - 2:00pm
Retired union members are invited to join Connecticut's largest teacher retiree organizations for the sixth 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 harmful policies, such as unilaterally increased pension contributions — a targeted teachers' tax — and a credit for retired educators rolled-back in 2017.
  • 10:00am: Welcome & orientation
  • 11:00am - 12:00pm: Meet with legislators (be sure to make appointments in advance)
  • 12:00pm: Luncheon (invite legislators to join you)
