Labor Council Calls on CT Treasurer to Dump Bonds


At its January [2011?] meeting the Greater New Haven (CT) Central Labor Council (AFL-CIO) voted to write a letter to state Treasurer Denise Nappier asking her to sell off the state's holding of Israel Bonds. The state has well over $4 million in the bonds.

In Oct of 2009 the council asked the state AFL-CIO union federation to sell its bonds and in the spring of 2010 when the bonds matured the state federation did not buy more bonds.
