The Judicial Professional Employees Union (JPE) is a State of Connecticut employee bargaining unit comprised of over 1300 members who work in 80 different job classes at nearly as many different job site locations. JPE members provide direct court services and support services to the citizens of Connecticut. Nearly half of the bargaining unit are “hazardous duty” job classes composed of Adult and Juvenile Probation Officers and Juvenile Detention Staff.
The Judicial Professional Employees Union helps our membership, and the communities we serve, realize the limitless possibilities that the professional unity creates. Being a driving force in judicial best practices, we enable our professional members to optimize service to the Connecticut community through excellence and quality processes. We fight hard for job security and quality benefits for our members; it is self-evident that it helps us maintain the most diverse and exceptional labor force. JPE continues to be a trusted leader in Connecticut.
