Gov. Malloy And Unions Strike Tentative Concession Deal

Jessica Hill
Conn. Gov. Dannel Malloy

Connecticut state employees could receive four years of full job security if they agree to concessions such as a two-year wage freeze, three furlough days and higher insurance premiums and pension contributions.

That’s according to a draft labor concession agreement being considered by state employee union leaders.

The union leaders may decide by Tuesday whether to present the proposal to rank-and-file members for consideration.

The proposal is the result of months of closed-door negotiations between Democratic Governor Dannel Malloy's administration and the state employee union leaders as the state tries to balance a deficit of more than $2 billion.
