Brothers & Sisters, it is with sadness I come to you with news that we lost a Healthcare Worker

from AFT Local 5123, to COVID-19 on 5-19-2020. Our sister union member wasn’t provided adequate PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) for the work she was assigned. The shortage of PPE puts workers at risk as the state begins to open, the shortage will affect more and more industries. Without proper protection the pandemic will linger longer and longer with more and more deaths occurring. We want our employer Yale New Haven Health to step up and protect their healthcare workers which wll in turn protect our community.

Four AFT Local unions are hosting a rally to bring attention to this issue with a demand for the Federal Government to step up and utilize the Defense Production Act to start manufacturing sufficient PPE. As well we want to hold all employers accountable to provide Safety, Protection & Respect in the workplace.

We invite you and your membership to join and participate in our Rally scheduled for May 30, 2020 Registration starts at 10:00 AM.  (See Flyer below)

We plan to also do a food drive for The United Way/ Gemma Moran Food Bank. 

WE NEED LABOR TO MAKE STRONG SHOWING. 

Thank you

By Ray Curry, Secretary-Treasurer, UAW A month into a tumultuous start of a new year, a new year following the most chaotic year in America that any living person can remember, I am seeing signs that the work in the streets and in our hospitals and at our voting booths far and wide, are saying even in states no one thought we would have captured after 2016, that even though we have been hit hard on so many fronts, it’s our front line that is now advancing for the greater good. It is divisiveness and hate that must retreat; it is science that will now confront COVID-19. And it is Americans of color who overcame at the polls to deliver the House, the Senate and the Presidency....
