Connecticut state college employees avoid layoffs with political bargain

About 470 state college employees will stave off layoffs thanks to a deal struck between the state employees’ union and the governor, The Chronicle of Higher Education reported. The deal, which includes a concession in the form of a temporary wage freeze, ensures that state employees will not face layoffs for the next four years. It also means that most of the 3,000 termination notices sent to state employees in June will be rescinded, the Chronicle reported.
