The SEBAC unions are in engaged in informal discussions with the Malloy administration. The administration is seeking $700 million in savings in each year of the budget.
The state’s budget deficit is now at $5 Billion–so high that there is no possible way to resolve it without increasing revenue. We cannot cut our way out of this crisis.
To protect our clients, our services and our jobs, all 1199 members should contact their legislators and urge them to increase tax revenue to balance the budget.
