March for Higher Education - UPDATED

Date: 
Wed, 09/29/2021 - 4:00pm - 5:00pm
Note: updated with confirmed location information.
 
Members of all AFT Connecticut-affiliated unions are invited to show solidarity for public higher education professionals who seek fairness and justice on the job. This action is an important next step in current negotiations over successor contracts for faculty and support staff at community colleges, state universities and the University of Connecticut (UConn).
 
Gather on the New Haven Green; event begins with a march to the sidewalk outside Gateway Community College for a press conference focused on challenges facing public higher education professionals (e.g., unfair contract proposals, workforce reductions and increased workloads, proposed community college consolidations).
 
The event is being organized by the State Employees Bargaining Agent Coalition (SEBAC) and the Recovery for All CT coalition.
