Please join us for our annual meeting at the New Haven Labor Center, 267 Chapel Street, New Haven. As usual, the GNHLHA will present the Augusta Louis Troup “Pass It On” award to people and organizations that advance the labor movement agenda of decent working conditions at a good wage with hope for the future.


This year’s recipients are Dan Livingston and Cathy Osten.  Dan is one of the most widely known and respected labor attorneys in Connecticut, a life-time member of the United Auto Workers Union, and a progressive activist. Cathy is a Democratic member of the Connecticut State Legislature representing District 19 since 2013. As the President of SEIU 2001, she successfully led efforts for Connecticut health care, paid sick leave and aligning prevailing union wageand minimum wages to annual CPI increases.


In addition, there will be a panel discussion on the labor movement since the Janus vs AFCSME supreme court decision. It will be moderated by Troy Rondinone (labor history professor at Southern CT State University) with the following participants: Teri Merisolis (AFTCT Legislative Advocate), Rick Melita (SEIU Director of CT State Council), Sal Luciano (CT AFL-CIO president), Dan Livingston and Cathy Osten.


Pizza will be served from 1:30 to 2 pm, then we will start our program and awards promptly. Frank Panzarella will perform labor music.


The meeting is free and open to the public. The GNLHA welcomes you to join the organization or renew your membership. It cost $25 or $10 for low income people each year.
