|Time:||12:00 PM to 1:00 PM|
|Location:||CT Department of Labor
200 Folly Brook Blvd
Wethersfield, CT 06109
|Description:||Effective Oct. 1, 2015, the State Labor Department is laying off 95 workers and closing 6 of 11 job centers across the state along with an unemployment call center.
These cuts will make Connecticut’s economy bleed by increasing wait times for unemployment benefits and reducing access to employment services.
Join Department of Labor workers and our community allies as we pledge to sustain the fight to protect vital public services.
You can also help by signing the “Stop the DOL Service Cuts” petition and sharing it with your family & friends!

ALL MEMBERS OF LOCAL 919 ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND AND SUPPORT
Nine building cleaners are still fighting to regain their jobs after being thrown out back in July.
What’s more, over half of the workers have young children and they’re struggling to get their kids everything they need as they go back to school. Join the workers with their children on Sept. 9th as they fight to get their jobs back.
These 9 workers are members of SEIU Local 32BJ and the owner of the office building they cleaned in Rocky Hill replaced them with minimum wage workers. Some of these workers have put in 15 years or more cleaning this office building.
We’re rallying with these workers to tell the owners:
- Stop putting corporate profits ahead of family stability!
- Bring these good workers back on the job!
Please come out and show your support for these workers & their children on Sept. 9th!
