Building public employee density in Baltimore

Public employee activists, leaders and staff took part in an AFT-sponsored mobilization and organizing training last month in Baltimore. Dozens of AFT stalwarts, including some from Connecticut and New York, went to Maryland for a week in mid-June to help the City Union of Baltimore and AFT Healthcare Maryland build employees’ power by increasing membership. Participants were trained on the AFT organizing model, including how to have one-on-one conversations.
