Each year, the American Federation of Teachers accepts nominations for the AFT Everyday Hero award in all constituency categories (Teachers, PSRPs, Higher Education, Public Employees, Healthcare, Early Childhood, and Retirees). One winner from each group is chosen by AFT members from across the country.

Wozniak was selected an AFT Everyday Hero from a group of semifinalists nationwide. Two other outstanding IFT members – Tammy Arvin, Peoria Federation of Support Staff, Local 6099 and James Mucci, AFT Local 604 (Joliet) – were chosen as semifinalists in the PSRP category this year.  

As a 2016 AFT Everyday Hero, Wozniak will be recognized at the national union’s convention in Minneapolis next month.

Way to go, Erika, and congratulations to our IFT semifinalists. You are ALL heroes in our book!
