Earlier this week we posted an update confirming that hundreds of state public service workers had received layoff notices. Since then, many more union members have learned that their positions will be eliminated without an agreement that provides job security.
Leaders of the State Employees Bargaining Agent Coalition (SEBAC) are confident that they can reach a mutual resolution with Connecticut’s governor. One that avoids putting any workers on the unemployment line and protects their vital health and retirement benefits. And that doesn’t take away their right to negotiate them with the state.
If you are a member of a SEBAC union and have received a layoff notice, we want to hear from you. If you are willing to present your experience publicly, please let us know by indicating it on the survey.
Complete this online survey to provide your information to the coalition’s communications committee.
Be sure to contact your union’s elected or staff representatives if you have been advised your position has been eliminated, or received an announcement of programmatic cuts or facility closure.
Or if you prefer, you can click here to download the survey and complete by hand the old fashioned way. Please fill it out and mail it to:
