Unions are holding rallies across four cities in Connecticut on Monday.
One of Connecticut’s largest unions has elected a new executive director.
The Connecticut Post has reported that a juvenile escaped from a detention center in Bridgeport on Wednesday Night.
That “Paid Family and Medical Leave” plan is inching its way toward a vote at the State Capitol, but one final detail is holding things up.
The Connecticut. Judicial Department has announced that 239 full-time Judicial Branch employees have been laid off, effective Thursday.
Connecticut’s Democratic Speaker of the House says he’s calling the House back into session one week from today to vote on a budget plan. On Tuesday, House Republican leaders presented their version of a budget and unlike the Democrats’ plan it calls for no tax hikes of any kind.
Connecticut union leaders are taking steps to try and help more than 1,000 laid-off state employees get their jobs back.
As law makers are trying to balance the budget and recover more than $200 million in cost overruns, the layoffs notices are going out. Governor Malloy says there could be as many as 2,000, and even 4,000 layoffs are not out of the question.
Today, another wave of state employees lost their jobs, and the governor made even more cuts.
Governor Malloy said thousands could be laid off to make up for the state’s budget deficit. Tonight Republicans are saying, not so fast.
