Correction Department Offers To Rehire Laid-Off Prison Supervisors

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ The Connecticut Department of Correction is offering to rehire 21 prison supervisors laid off in August.

Sixteen lieutenants, one captain and four counselor supervisors lost their jobs after their bargaining unit failed to ratify a concessions agreement reached with Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.

But like other state agencies, the prisons department has seen an increase in staff retirements, and spokesman Brian Garnett said Tuesday the department is now looking to rehire supervisors.

To date, one captain and three counselors have been brought back to work.

Garnett said one counselor supervisor and eight lieutenants are returning to work on Friday. The department is now awaiting authorization to rehire the remaining eight lieutenants.

On Monday, 56 laid-off state troopers also learned they’ll be returning to work.
