UConn Labor Coalition Informational Picketing

Members of AFT Connecticut-affiliated unions are invited to join the professors, faculty and staff in Connecticut’s flagship public university system to raise awareness  of  a worsening student learning crisis.

The purpose is to spread the word that proposed cuts will harm  University of Connecticut (UConn) students ahead of a virtual “Town Hall” scheduled  Jan 24 2024. Members are encouraged to bring at least one colleague with them for any amount of time they are available during the picket to amplify  the collective demand for  quality, public higher education. The event is organized by the UConn Labor Coalition, which includes our affiliated University of Connecticut Professional Employees Association (UCPEA), University Health Professionals (UHP), UConn-AAUP, UCHC-AAUP and A&R Employees Union.

Fee-based parking for visitors is available on campus (the South Garage is closest to the event).
