Labor unions work hard to improve the lives of working families nationwide. We believe strongly that quality, affordable health care is a right for everyone in America.
By upholding the Affordable Care Act, the U.S. Supreme Court has sided with the American people to make quality, affordable health care a reality.
Here in Connecticut, our union has worked to improve access to affordable healthcare through efforts like pooling in the state employee health plan for municipalities, non-profits and small businesses.
“We applaud the decision of the Supreme Court,” said Sharon Palmer, president of AFT Connecticut. “As the Affordable Care Act moves forward we will be working to ensure everyone is covered in Connecticut.”
