A Connecticut Labor Department hearing officer has asked for more information about a complaint from a state worker unhappy with her union’s decision to hold a second vote on contract concessions, arguing the State Employee Bargaining Agent Coalition violated its own rules.

Several dozen supporters rallied outside the Wethersfield office where the closed-door hearing was held, arguing that rank-and-file workers had not given SEBAC authority for the discussion.  They carried signs saying “SEBAC Shame on You.”  One protestor said having a second vote after the those voting had made their decisions “makes democracy a sham.”

State employee union negotiator Dan Livingston says union leaders acted legally, in the interests of their members.   Association of Prosecutors attorney Robert Krzys says the union does not feel that the claims amount to an unfair labor practice.

No date was set for the continuation of the complaint.

    I can’t figure out what DANNY BOY promised the UNION LEADERS to change the rules of the game or is it just less mula in the pockets of the union boys and gals who run the union

    “All I want is less to do, more time to do it, and more pay for not getting it done.” (from a plaque I saw many years ago), and don’t forget my big pension when I am no longer productive. Can we please put a leash on these greedy, corrupt, unions???
