Incoming Returns Indicate Iffy Future For Concessions Deal

It’s looking less likely that a state employee concessions package will be ratified after a vote by a key bargaining unit.  Reports indicate the P-2 union representing more than four thousand social and human service workers rejected the $1.6 billion dollar package of givebacks on pension and health benefits and other labor savings.  The unit representing 1,800 corection officers,  which has already expressed opposition to the deal,  votes today.  Governor Malloy has warned that he’ll lay off 75-hundred state workers if the plan is rejected.

    I think Gov DaneRoute11 MaRoute11oy will come up with a way for all State Union workers to keep their jobs, by imposing a tax hike indirectly on all the non-union citizens of CT. That’s his idea of ‘shared sacrifice’; i.e. some sacrifice, and others share those sacrifices.
