Each year, AFT Connecticut recognizes a Unionist of the Year and presents the Joseph H. Soifer award at our annual convention. Those honored are nominated by their fellow members and chosen based on their contributions to our union and the labor movement by AFT Connecticut's Nominations Committee. A member is also recognized by our state federation president with an award for demonstrating exemplary leadership over the past year.
