HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says
he’s still hopeful a labor savings deal can be reached with the
state employee unions, even though time is quickly running out for
an agreement.

Talks continued Monday.

Malloy would not reveal the administration’s deadline for
reaching a deal. But the Democratic governor has said he needs to
begin issuing thousands of notices before the end of the fiscal
year on June 30. Union members require eight weeks or less
notification.

Negotiators for unionized state employees said Malloy’s
administration has told them that some notices could be issued
Tuesday morning.

The State Employees Bargaining Agent Coalition, in
a statement posted on its website, said it continues to fight
against layoffs and discuss ways to come up with $2 billion in
savings over two years.
