HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s administration is fighting a rumor among some state workers, saying it’s untrue they’ve reached an alleged special deal with the Connecticut state police union.

The rumor comes as the 45,000 unionized employees vote for a second time on a labor savings and concessions agreement that’s supposed to provide $1.6 billion in savings for the two-year, $40.1 billion state budget.

An email from Malloy’s chief labor negotiator to a union official was released Thursday to the media. It said there have been no side deals or special arrangements with any of the 15 unions and there won’t be any in the future.

A union spokesman said a few members raised the issue over the past few days.

Rank-and-file workers are expected to finish voting by Aug. 18.
