”AFT in Action:” Assuring Safe, Accessible Patient Care

March 31, 2022

AFT Connecticut President Jan Hochadel is once again joined by local union leader Sherri Dayton for a relevant conversation on legislative proposals impacting healthcare professionals currently before the General Assembly. Together they co-host an episode focused on initiatives that would help achieve safe patient care and to hold health chains accountable for gutting vital services.

Joining them to offer the perspective of both a lawmaker and an advocate is state Rep. Jillian Gilchrist, the House vice chair of the legislature's public health committee. She illuminates union members on the role of direct activism in making systemic changes within an increasingly corporatized healthcare industry. Additionally she suggests concrete steps for improving working conditions and protecting access to care in the closing weeks of the General Assembly's 2022 session.
