AFT members have been nominated for the 2014 Everyday Heroes Award. These are hard-working women and men who have made a difference in their workplaces, had a profound and positive impact on their community and whose contributions in their field of work -- or to the lives of others -- have been heroic.
 
Click here to see the list of the 2014 semifinalists -- which include five members of AFT Connecticut unions in two categories -- and cast your votes today.
 
The nominee in each constituency with the most votes will be chosen as a finalist. Each finalist will be honored at the 2014 AFT convention in Los Angeles.
 
Participation is not limited to members of AFT-affiliated unions, so encourage your friends, family and neighbors to vote for our Connecticut colleagues before the April 20 deadline.
