"Safe Patient Care" Capitol News Briefing - RESCHEDULED

Mon, 01/23/2023 - 11:15am - 11:45am
Note: we will meet in the LOB Atrium at 11:00AM.
 
Note: event has been resceduled from its original Mon, 01/09/2023 date.
 
Members of AFT Connecticut-affiliated healthcare unions are invited to join labor leaders, elected officials and patient advocates to announce policy prescriptions for the state’s care crisis. This action is an important next step in ongoing efforts to move lawmakers to adopt proposals that would address unsafe staffing, establish safe patient limits and protect vital health services. 
 
Confirmed speakers include national AFT President Randi Weingarten and the chairs of the legislature's Joint Committee on Public Health; State Senator Saud Anwar and State Representative Cristin McCarthy Vahey.
 
Our national union's recently released Healthcare Staffing Shortage Task Force report serves as a blueprint for policies to advocate for in the 2023 session of the Connecticut General Assembly. The event is being organized by AFT Connecticut.
 
Free parking available in the adjacent garage (and on-street if at capacity).
