It’s Official: Unions Reject Deal

Posted on June 24, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

This morning, Gov. Malloy’s proposed deal with the unions was dealt its final blow when a union representing local prison workers voted it down, officially killing the deal.

Malloy called legislators back for a special session next week to vote on a revised budget.

The mass layoffs Malloy has been proclaiming for months would be his plan B should the unions reject the deal are very likely, as are cuts to municipal aid.

According to the Hartford Courant, Malloy spoke with the mayors of the state’s five largest cities today and “pledged to do as little damage as possible to cities and towns when cutting the budget.”

Union officials will be talking to reporters today; on the legislative side of the equation, Columbia Senator Edith Prague is one legislator who’s very outspoken about the result of the union vote.
