We have made an executive decision to cancel the upcoming September 8, 2016 P4 Council meeting and have delegates and alternates attend an important call to action at the D.U.E. Justice Coalition’s Take Back Connecticut meeting at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain.
The specific details of the event are:
Take Back Connecticut!
D.U.E Justice Coalition Action
Thursday, Sept 8th, 6:30PM
CT Central State University, Welte Auditorium
New Britain, Connecticut
This is an important event in our fight for keeping our SEBAC and P4 Contract secure. We’ll be coming together to fight for good jobs; quality schools; a vibrant and fairly funded public sector; racial, gender, and ethnic justice; and democracy in our state and our workplaces. The entire leadership of the P4 Council looks forward to seeing you at this event. Please direct any specific questions about the event to our CSEA SEIU Local 2001political director Danny Medress (860-951-6614) or P4 President Travis Woodward (firstname.lastname@example.org)
See you there!!! And we will see you on October 6th, 2016 at our next monthly meeting.

CSEA has begun negotiating successor agreements with the state of Connecticut over 7 state bargaining unit contracts that are set to expire on June 30, 2016. These negotiations follow months of listening sessions, contract surveys, and the formation of negotiating committees. We are facing a difficult bargaining environment due to budget uncertainty at the state and certain lawmakers are already calling for concessions. In order to win a fair contract we are going to need to be ready to mobilize to fight at the capitol in the coming months. Stay tuned.
The window period during which a petition can be filed with the state labor board to initiate a representational election has now closed and CSEA P-4 members have soundly rejected UPSEU, who failed to garner the minimum support necessary to trigger an election.
This is excellent news for all of P-4; we have shown that we speak with one unified voice and now we will move forward together and concentrate all of our efforts on winning a strong contract.
To All DOT Members,
In cases when emergency situations occur outside of normal business hours, the state has made available on DOT’s Internet Site, (under Quick Links http://www.ct.gov/dot/cwp/view.asp?a=1372&q=565834 ) important information, instructions and the necessary forms to be completed to help ensure that employees’ families/beneficiaries receive the benefits they are entitled to. (These forms are also available on the DOT intranet/Human Resources forms/Emergency Disability<http://dot.si.ct.gov/dotsi/cwp/view.asp?a=3568&q=449740>).
During normal business hours, you may contact the state’s retirement office at (860) 594-3108.
These forms are as a result of CSEA pushing for emergency disability efforts for the membership throughout the year as well as successful use of a P-4 labor management committee at DOT).
