Chartered as a labor union by the AFT in June 1947, the Hartford Federation of Teachers is the second-largest teacher local in New England. Originally founded to assure teachers of equity in regards to wages, hours, and working conditions, the HFT helps negotiate collective bargaining agreements and continues to work towards increased equity for all. The HFT has grown from its first 10 members to over 2,000 members. In addition to representing teachers, the HFT includes chapters that represent school nurses, dental hygienists, special police officers, child development associates, and substitute teachers. Together they are an organization of nearly 2,000 “Professionals Who Care.”
Fanfare Enterprises was THRILLED to support the important work of the HFT by developing their digital footprint and communications strategies with their members and the Hartford community.
