Public Employees

AFT Connecticut represents thousands working in the state’s executive and judicial branches, as well as the career and technical education system, colleges and universities, in addition to several local municipalities. Our federation is also part of the State Employees Bargaining Agent Coalition (SEBAC), which serves to unite the major unions representing over 40,000 full and part-time Connecticut state workers.

Timely updates and relevant resources for members of SEBAC-affiliated locals are available at the coalition’s website, linked above.

State workers whose rights to collective bargaining have been historically restricted under the law are also a part of our labor family. Since the 2017 affiliation with the Association of Managerial Employees in the Connecticut State Service (AMECSS), hundreds have joined together for a stronger voice on the job.
