AFT Connecticut

May 2019 “AFT in Action”

May 31, 2019

The latest episode in AFT Connecticut's podcast series features another in-depth discussion of public policy issues impacting union members in their workplace and their community. Jan Hochadel, state federation president, once again leads the conversation and is joined by Mary Yordon, an executive committee vice president and local union leader, as co-host.

Their guests are Dalio Philanthropies' Education Director Barbara Dalio and Chief Education Officer Andrew Ferguson. They discuss their record of collaboration with public school teachers, administrators and advocates across Connecticut and answer members' questions regarding the foundation's recently announced new state-level partnership.


AFT Connecticut's podcasts serve to provide a deeper dive into issues impacting members and the wider labor movement as part of the state federation’s engagement and communications programs.
