"Now this agreement must be ratified by the individual employee bargaining units. As a show of good faith, I've directed OPM to immediately suspend the issuance of layoff notices, and to rescind the ones that have been issued so far. I urge my fellow state employees to approve this agreement in a timely fashion. Once ratified by the rank and file workers, we stand ready to work with the leadership of the General Assembly to secure final approval. When that happens, come July 1, the state will have in place a budget that is balanced with no gimmicks, and one that provides something the state hasn't had in many years: fiscal stability.
"In the short term, over the next two years, this agreement will save taxpayers 1.6 billion dollars. The remaining 400 million dollars we need to balance this budget will come from a mix of additional spending cuts and existing budgeted revenues.
"One more point: there are no furlough days in this agreement, nor is there a reduction in the 40 hour work week. This means we've achieved these savings without reducing government's ability to serve its constituents, and without reducing employees' productivity.
and they will provide relief to Connecticut taxpayers now and into the future for years to come. This agreement should serve as the foundation for affordable public services for a generation, and does not leave the bill for those services to the generations that follow.
"Our agreement is also historic because of the way we achieved it. We respected the collective bargaining process and we respected each other, negotiating in good faith, without fireworks and without anger. To my friends in SEBAC, thank you. You have stepped up to the plate and said you want to be part of the solution. Under this agreement, we will all share in the sacrifices necessary to stabilize the state's finances.
"Most of all, it will contain the type of structural reform Connecticut so desperately needs.
There was a long negotiating session Wednesday with a lot of speculation among workers that a deal was close. The major issues continue to be pension changes and health care, including health benefits for the spouses of retirees. Negotiations were continuing Thursday and more layoff notices were scheduled to be delivered.
The biggest concentration of notices were delivered to 136 workers at the Department of Correction with 27 going to the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services.

Negotiators for the State Employees Bargaining Agent Coalition also put out an internal statement Thursday, asking workers to stop speculating and let them work on a deal.
Malloy made the following remarks at a news conference this afternoon announcing an agreement between his administration and state employee union leaders:
not rise beyond what is already in this budget.
we are to again grow, produce new jobs, and prosper together.
"I want to be very clear that, as I said the day I signed the budget that was passed by the Legislature, this is not a day to celebrate. Yes, it's a significant accomplishment, and yes, it will save taxpayers an enormous amount of money over time but anytime you ask sacrifices of people you need to be mindful of the impact on their lives. And I am.
"I also want to thank the person who has been my true partner in this Administration since Day 1: Nancy Wyman, the best Lt. Governor a Governor could ever ask for. As many of you know, Nancy has a long standing relationship with our state employee unions and their members, and her guidance and wisdom throughout this process has been invaluable. Thank you, Nancy.
"I want to thank Mark Ojakian and Linda Yelmini. They negotiated on behalf of my Administration, and that we are standing here today is in part a testament to their thoughtfulness, patience, and determination.
"These savings were achieved in the areas of healthcare and pension benefits, and wages. Our Prada Bags 2016 Collection fellow state employee leaders have asked us to refrain from discussing the specific details within each of those categories until they've had a chance to communicate them to their members. We're happy to comply with that request.

As of Wednesday, the state had issued 182 layoff notices out of the more than 4,700 it is plans to send out so workers are warned of job losses in a timely fashion if a $2 billion union concession deal falls through.
"In return for all the sacrifices they have made, state employees have received job security. But let me be very clear about this: the work of revitalizing state government has just begun, and it will continue. Over the next few years, I intend to reduce the number of state employees, but rather than doing that by layoffs, we will do it by attrition, and by eliminating managerial positions. And we will make the state workforce more efficient by making smart investments in technology. We will give our state employees the tools they need to succeed.
"I am pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement with our fellow state employee leaders that will, over the next 20 years, save Connecticut taxpayers a total of 21 and a half billion dollars.
