According to this NBC report Connecticut Governor warns of massive layoffs if union concussions aren’t met.
Gov. Dan Malloy said Thursday that his stance, and budget figures for that matter, haven’t changed.
As many as 4,200 state positions might need to be eliminated if his administration didn’t achieve a saving target of $700 million in union concessions, he said during a news conference.
The Malloy administration informed the State Employees Bargaining Coalition, or SEBAC, which represents tens of thousands of state workers in union negotiations, that his office had to start making plans for layoffs, which means some notices could be sent out in the near future.
