The AFT-Maryland brought together Maryland Legislators and the leadership of the collective unions of the state federation for a reception in Annapolis. More than 20 members of the Maryland General Assembly were in attendance and discussed important education and public employee issues facing the General Assembly this session.
The invitation-only event was held at the Maryland Inn and gave union leaders direct access to address their concerns to some of the people who will set the legislative course for Maryland. Among the issues discussed were funding for Baltimore City schools, COLA increases for state workers, protecting Maryland's strong charter school law, and indoor air quality at state agencies.
