Malloy Administration Awards Non-Union Employees 3 Percent Raises
Salaries for Managers Should Not Rise Given Deficit, Layoffs
Feb. 12 –Gov. Dannel Malloy and his administration quietly approved 3 percent raises for non-union state employees in December. The increases will take effect on March 4.
“Connecticut state employees already earn at least 25 percent more than non-government workers doing the same job,” said Carol Platt Liebau, president of the Yankee Institute. “Providing unnecessary raises only increases that unfairness.”
“Gov. Malloy has said he is willing to make much-needed cuts and reorganize the state workforce with an eye toward efficiency. We urge him to continue down that path instead of offering more voluntary raises,” Liebau said.
Department of Administrative Services Commissioner Melody Currey signed the documents granting the raises on Dec. 17. Office of Policy and Management Secretary Benjamin Barnes signed the documents on Dec. 18.
