Commencement Day Action for "The Fast Against Slow" at Yale University

Date: 
Mon, 05/22/2017 - 8:30am - 12:00pm
The union representing graduate teachers at Yale University has organized a series of actions on campus to coincide with Commencement Day activities to raise awareness of their fight for fairness. AFT Connecticut supported their decades-long effort to organize and to bring their employer to the table for first contract negotiations. We’re joining the state's labor movement in standing with the university's employees who for three weeks have demonstrated in "the fast against slow" to protest Yale’s stalling tactics.
 
Members of AFT Connecticut-affiliated unions are asked to meet outside UNITE-HERE's hall at 8:30AM for the day's opening action. National AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Liz Shuler will join us, along with members of unions from across the state for the demonstration. A rally at 10:30AM will close out the day's activities.
