CT State Workers Look for Protection From Concessions

A clear fight is in the future, as Gov. Malloy's (D-Conn.) budget relies heavily on labor concessions.

Today, Connecticut state labor unions launched a new ad called “Buildings.” Amid Connecticut’s budget negotiations, union workers hope for protection from concessions and layoffs.

The 30-second TV ad was paid for by 1199 New England SEIU.

Watch it here.

A clear fight is in the future, as Gov. Malloy’s (D-Conn.) budget relies heavily on labor concessions – from past, generous labor deals reached with state workers:

Malloy, who met with Capitol reporters on Tuesday, said labor concessions remain a crucial component of his plan to balance the next two-year state budget. Finances, unless adjusted, will run $3 billion in deficit over the next two fiscal years combined, according to nonpartisan analysts, while the administration pegs the potential shortfall at $3.6 billion.

This newest ad is likely the first of many as Connecticut’s leaders look to budget cuts, revenue adjustments, and labor concessions to close the state’s budget gap.
