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.
