CONCESSIONS DEAL REVEALED; WILL THE RANK AND FILE APPROVE?

As expected, some details of the deal between the Malloy administration and state employee labor unions have been revealed—it’s complicated, contains minutiae and seems to rely on a fair amount of state workers leaving state service.

Malloy is expecting the package to be ratified but judging by websites and blog, the rank and file who oppose the plan will be very vocal. Votes by the unions on the plan could actually take a couple weeks.
