The Municipal Employees Union Independent (MEUI) is dedicated to improving the lives of workers and their families and creating a more just and humane society.
MEUI represents municipal employees throughout the State of Connecticut. We represent city and town employees ranging from administrative bargaining units comprised of positions such as Assessor, Planning Director, Building Official and Recreation Director, to Highway Department, Water Department, Police Dispatch, Maintenance and Park and Recreation employees. We also represent Board of Education employees in bargaining units comprised of Bus Drivers, Cafeteria Workers, Custodians, Secretaries and Teaching Assistants.
Our experienced staff handle contract and pension negotiations both at the bargaining table and in interest binding arbitration. Throughout the negotiations process we work with the negotiating committee elected by the members, and bargain for proposals crafted from the input of the membership. We are well versed in Workers’ Compensation and disability laws, and our Workers’ Compensation department assists MEUI members who have been injured on the job. We investigate and file grievances and represent members at grievance arbitration. When necessary to protect members’ rights, we file prohibited practices under the Municipal Employees Relations Act.
We also strengthen the union and the labor movement as a whole by organizing new members, with our reputation for service helping us to organize unorganized workers to fight for improved wages, benefits, and working conditions.
Our trademark is SERVICE.
