Kerry Florio-Munroe

Kerry Florio-Munroe was raised in a Union household. Kerry works full time at Connecticut Health Care Associates District 1199, NUHHCE and is their elected Executive Secretary. After falling in love with volunteerism, community action and politics studying at The George Washington University, Kerry moved back to Connecticut. For eight years Kerry watched her employer whittle away benefits, freeze pay, and discipline unfairly. In 2015 this led to her participation in the organization of CHCA bargaining unit 1213 as well as Negotiating Committee membership for the initial and successor contracts. Kerry wanted a voice in her workplace, a contract, and the solidarity of Union Membership. Since then Kerry was elected to CHCA's Executive Board and eventually as the Executive Secretary. A love of interpreting contract language with extensive work on grievances and arbitrations in both the public and private sector, Kerry found her niche in labor. As a woman under forty Kerry is excited to bring her love of labor as well as her experiences community organizing and in the nonprofit world into her role. Kerry is the Secretary-Treasurer of the Western Connecticut Area Labor Federation. In her free time Kerry can be found with her husband and three boys, usually on a baseball field.
