Public Employees

AFT Connecticut represents thousands working in the state's executive and judicial branches, career and technical education system, colleges and universities, as well as for several local municipalities.
 
Our federation is also part of the State Employees Bargaining Agent Coalition (SEBAC), which serves to unite all 15 unions representing approximately 40,000 full and part-time Connecticut state workers. The coalition was recognized in 1986 to negotiate healthcare and retirement security, which impacts individual unions' active members, as well as retirees.
 
Leaders of unions representing municipal, public school and state employees have since January, 2019 met with senior representatives of the Lamont Administration to address budgetary and service delivery issues. Further concessions have remained off the table during these discussions.
 
An agreement was in mid July reached that will help stabilize state pensions and ensure obligations to current and future retirees are fully funded.
