Don't Silence Connecticut Businesses

The state Senate will soon vote on legislation restricting your right to speak freely to employees.

SB 64 and SB 440 prohibit employers from requiring employee attendance at staff meetings where any "political matter" is discussed.

This includes any talk related to community engagement, unionization, wages and benefits, working conditions, and charitable and civic engagement.

It even prevents discussion of legislation or regulations—unless you can prove they directly impact your business.

Is this even legal?

In 2018, then-Attorney General George Jepsen told lawmakers the National Labor Relations Act preempts state law.

A former Obama-era NLRB chair recently said the legislation is "invalid and unenforceable" and could also be seen as an unconstitutional restriction on free speech.

Tell your state senator to vote NO on SB 64 and SB 440.

Act NOw
