CPFU’s Response to AAUP and GEU Joint Letter to UConn President Maric

CPFU's Response to AAUP and GEU Joint Letter to UConn President Maric
The Connecticut Police & Fire Union has been made aware of a letter sent to UConn Administration regarding police action on the UConn Campus. We are deeply saddened that many key facts are missing from this letter, and our members of the UConn Police Department are being unfairly targeted for doing their jobs.

Police officers around this country report to work daily with a willingness to place themselves second to the citizens they serve. This unconscionable attack on UConn Police officers by other unions is unacceptable and unnecessary. The continued anti-police movement continues to result in low department morale, heavy officer employment turnover and a decrease in public servants filling the ranks, not only at UConn, but many other police agencies in Connecticut and across the country.

We call on all other unions to step up and defend the services our members provide—especially our police officers. The State Employees Bargaining Agent Coalition (SEBAC) was founded to progress workers’ wages, benefits, and retirement options. The continued desire of some SEBAC membership organizations to branch out into other areas of social justice and public protest should be taken up on their accord, without SEBAC dues money, and without any connection to SEBAC in any fashion. We call on SEBAC to issue a statement demonstrating their support of the police officers they represent. We urge SEBAC to return to its core founding principles.

There is no place for other unions to participate in anti-union activity to progress their own agenda. We are stronger together.
