AFL-CIO to Release Working People’s Plan to Reopen Connecticut Economy

On Thursday, April 30, at 10:30 a.m., labor leaders representing essential, frontline workers and those working from home, along with national AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, will release the working people’s plan for reopening the State of Connecticut.

Essential workers have been keeping Connecticut running and selflessly serving their communities throughout this deadly pandemic. They are the ones whose lives and health are on the line. Therefore, essential workers must have a significant role in deciding when it is safe to reopen our economy and allow others to return to work.

Last week, Gov. Lamont announced the membership of “Reopen Connecticut Advisory Group” and its various subcommittees. Notably absent were many representatives of frontline workers.

Who is missing? Representatives of nurses, nursing home workers, grocery store workers, corrections officers, bus drivers, and many other workers on the frontline everyday keeping our state running.

National AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka will kick off the press conference.
