2018 Legislative Reception

Leadership and representatives from the unions that make up the AFT-Maryland engaged with state elected officials at their annual Legislative Reception. Members and leaders met with delegates and state senators to discuss issues and bills of importance to their members. Speaker of the House Michael Busch made an appearance at the event and chatted with AFT-Maryland President Marietta English. Leadership from MPEC, BCFPE, CUB, and AFT Healthcare Maryland were all in attendance to discuss important issues with legislators.

Members were also in attendance and they had the opportunity to meet with officials who represent them as well as those who sit on committees that oversee bills relevant to their work.

The reception is an annual event the state federation hosts to connect legislators and union leaders and membership in an intimate setting. This allows for greater one-on-one dialogue which allows legislators to hear from educational professionals as well as state and municipal employees who are on the front lines and can give the elected officials direct information on their work environment and conditions.
