From the state union bargaining coalition:
Ratification Voting Process and Schedule for SEBAC Unions Not Yet Set
Leaders of the unions in the State Employees Bargaining Agent Coalition (SEBAC) yesterday reached an agreement with Malloy Administration to save members’ jobs while preserving and extending their benefits. There is an urgent need to have an agreement in place quickly to stop further layoffs and protect those members who have already received pink slips.
As with the ratification process on the previous agreement, individual unions and bargaining units will be determining their own ratification or affirmation process and timeline. Schedules have not been set yet.
Members will be notified of the voting process, as well as dates and polling locations, by their union or bargaining unit as soon as they have been determined.
Union leaders expect Governor Dannel P. Malloy to rescind all layoff notices, restore services and re-open facilities slated for shutdown. Students in the state’s vocational schools deserve athletics and arts programs, correctional facilities should not be dangerously overcrowded, and commuters need viable public transportation options. That requires keeping the workers who deliver these and other services cut in the governor’s alternative budget on the job.
