Hartford: We Are Moving Ahead With Layoffs

We just checked in with city officials on Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra’s plan to layoff around a dozen employees to help balance his budget.  Earlier, he said those layoffs would start rolling out on Sept. 21 — that’s this week.

As that date nears, the city says in an email that “we are moving ahead with layoffs” and that a press release will be issued later this week.  Meanwhile, one of the city’s largest unions, AFSCME Local 1716, says it has a vote on a new contract with the city scheduled for next week.
