UConn “Stop the Cuts” Action at the Board of Trustees Meeting

Members of AFT Connecticut-affiliated union members are invited to join the professors, faculty and staff in the state’s flagship higher education institution in protecting their students’ learning opportunities. The purpose is to move University of Connecticut (UConn) trustees and top administrators to stop painful budget cuts.

To send a strong, unified message to the governor and board of trustees (BOT), members are urged to bring at least one colleague and, if applicable, student with them. Action begins at 8:30am with lining the halls of Wilbur Cross near the north reading room. The public speaking portion of the BOT meeting begins at 9:00 am and will provide the opportunity for sharing stories of the impact of the threatened cuts.
UConn President Maric’s opening remarks are expected at 9:30 am.

This action is organized by our affiliated UConn Professional Employees Association (UCPEA), UConn-AAUP, as well as the State Employees Bargaining Agent Coalition (SEBAC).

Fee-based parking for visitors is available on campus.
