Stop Gov. Malloy’s Unaffordable Union Deal
Government unions want lawmakers to approve a five-year contract extension, guaranteeing their jobs, benefits and wages for another ten years, through 2027. When the state once again faces a deficit, lawmakers will have no other choice but either to cut services or raise taxes again – or both.
Connecticut is already one of the country’s highest-taxed states. These tax rates are forcing many people and small businesses to leave the state, taking families and jobs out of Connecticut.
Legislators from both political parties are concerned the Governor’s agreement doesn’t go far enough to save the state money and will ultimately lead to higher taxes which will cripple our economy.
Email your state senator RIGHT NOW and say NO to this unaffordable union deal.
Unions Want to Raise Your Taxes
State unions get to keep their expensive pensions and healthcare benefits for life, plus they get four years of protection from layoffs – just for promising not to take a raise for three years. No wonder they approved it overwhelmingly! Now unions are demanding that lawmakers raise your taxes to pay for it.
Tell your state senator to stop future tax increases by stopping this deal.
A Disaster for Taxpayers
This deal is a disaster for taxpayers. Government union leaders themselves used the fear of future deficits to lobby for the contract extension, telling their members that layoff protections will be critical at those times.
Your state senator needs to know you oppose promises Connecticut can’t afford.
