Telephone Town Hall for AFT Members
Join AFT Massachusetts on Thursday, April 2 at 4:00 p.m. for a COVID-19 update. AFT MA leaders will discuss the impact the virus is having on our schools and communities, share how the union is responding, and answer your questions. We'll also spend some time saluting our front line first responders like nurses, school cafeteria workers, custodial members, and paraprofessionals. If you have questions you'd like us to answer on the call, please email them ahead of time to firstname.lastname@example.org. Register today!
