AFT-Maryland and community partners on their demands for the Port Covington TIF...More
The AFT-Maryland stood in support of Chase Brexton Health Services workers who were terminated for trying to form a union. Staff and members of the federation joined more than a hundred other activist and community members to protest decisions by the clinic’s administration to fire workers.
The 2016 AFT National Convention in Minneapolis, MN was one for the ages. Not only was it the 100th anniversary of the union, but there were a number of high profile elected officials and social justice activists that addressed the convention. The members even took to the streets themselves to put the rhetoric into action.
AFT-Maryland, in conjunction with partners from a large cross section of Baltimore (including labor, community activist and the religious community), told the Baltimore City Council it wouldn’t support the Sagamore development at Port Covington TIF unless some key demands were met.
AFT-Maryland was present and accounted for at the DPW Youthworks Resource Fair on Wednesday July 27, 2016 at the War Memorial Building, registering Baltimoreans to vote. Staff, members, and retirees in attendance worked to get young and old alike registered and involved in the electoral process.
AFT-Maryland is partnering with a number of labor, community, and religious organizations who are voicing concerns over proposed Port Covington project in Southwest Baltimore. We need to ensure the development benefits everyone in the city, not just a wealthy few. In particular, AFT-Maryland is asking that the development project not negatively impact funding for public schools and city services.
