Help the L & M Nurses & Techs

We received this e-mail from Lori Pelletier, Executive Secretary Treasurer of the CT AFL-CIO. Please help out our Union Brothers and Sisters if possible.

"Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Nearly 800 registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and healthcare techs and technologists at L&M Hospital have been locked out by the corporation that owns the community hospital. The community they serve has been asking how they can help in this, their most difficult time.

The community understands that the members of our local unions are standing up to the management of the hospital not for themselves alone. They are standing up for their patients, their families, and all of the people of the greater Southeastern Connecticut region. 

We are asking all of our Connecticut AFL-CIO family to help these locked out workers by making a donation today. 

Click here to access the AFT Militancy/Defense Fund and make a secure, online contribution with your credit card.

Your support will be a vital part of their lifeline so that our members don’t have to choose between putting food on the table or keeping the heat on at home during the corporation’s lockout. 

Your Sister in Solidarity,

Lori J. Pelletier
Executive Secretary Treasurer"
