Public Employees

AFT Connecticut represents thousands of public employees in nearly all agencies in Connecticut’s Executive and Judicial branches, as well as the Office of Higher Education. Our members provide a diverse range of vital services; healthcare, vocational education, financial management and planning, probation and child support enforcement, higher education administration and faculty, banking and fiscal regulation, forensic investigations and analysis, and facilities inspection and enforcement.
 
Our federation is also part of the State Employees Bargaining Agent Coalition (SEBAC), which serves to unite 16 unions representing approximately 45,000 full and part-time Connecticut state workers. The coalition was recognized in 1986 by Public Act 86-411 to negotiate healthcare and retirement benefits, which impact its unions' active members, as well as retirees.
