Legislative Action Alert: Public Hearing on PTSD Coverage Set for Nov. 22

On Friday, Nov. 22, 2019, the General Assembly’s Labor Committee will hold an important public hearing on expanding PTSD coverage under workers’ compensation to include Correction Officers and other workers. 

The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. in Room 1D of the Legislative Office Building in Hartford, CT.

We need a strong turnout of AFSCME members (including family members) to support our union’s effort to expand PTSD coverage under Public Act 19-17, which was passed last year.

We also need you to contact your legislators and the governor to urge their support of including correctional officers in the bill. Please click here to send a message to your elected officials.

If you are interested in attending the public hearing and/or providing brief testimony, please contact your Local 1565 Steward.
