Malloy: Layoff notice count up to 3,008
Hartford – The Malloy administration has issued more than 3,000 layoff notices this month and says it will issue more until state union members have ratified the latest concessions agreement between the governor and labor leaders.
The latest layoff report shows that a total of 3,008 workers have received pink slips as of 9 a.m. today, or 1,157 more than last week. The majority of the layoffs would take effect Aug 22.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has promised to roll back and rescind nearly all of the pink slips issued to union workers this month if the concession deal is ratified. The voting process for the ratification will soon get underway and conclude Aug. 18.
Malloy is moving forward with 6,560 position cuts – 4,300 actual layoffs – in case this latest concessions agreement is voted down like the previous deal.
