Since the first SEBAC agreement – a 1989 arbitration decision – SEBAC and the State have negotiated eight agreements that have changed public servants` health and pension benefits, created new levels of benefits for workers, changed public contributions to the public employee pension plan (SERS) and/or achieved budget savings through staff concessions. The SEBAC agreement negotiated in 2017 by Governor Dannel Malloy and state union leaders guaranteed two general wage increases of 3.5 per cent, as well as level increases of about 3 per cent in wages, bonuses and protection against redundancies between 2019 and 2021, in exchange for a three-year pay break between 2016 and 2019. The Adjudicator granted a 3 per cent increase to assistant supervisors in 2019 and 2020. The government had forecast only a 2.5% increase in 2019. The arbitrator wrote that the increases were in accordance with the SEBAC agreement and sided with the union with respect to progressive wage increases, but he sided with the state by not giving a lump sum bonus to supervisors at the higher level. What the members of the Union obtained in exchange for these concessions, the State extended the contract for the benefit of unionized civil servants by five years. The July 2017 SEBAC contract, which was due to expire in 2022, extends the contract until June 30, 2027, a step opponents of the agreement have deemed too generous.

For bargaining units that voted in favour of the wage concessions contained in the agreement, their members are exempt from redundancies until 30 June 2021. Bargaining units representing the State Police and Assistant Attorneys General were the only entities that did not authorize wage concessions and are therefore not protected from layoffs.

Lawmakers voted on March 27 in favor of a collective agreement for Connecticut`s assistant attorneys general, which included an 11 percent pay increase and bonuses, and on April 1, the Appropriations Committee approved a similar contract with state tax lawyers.

The Department of Assistant Attorneys General, established in 2016 only, had a specific report in the SEBAC agreement, in which it stated that the unit “will negotiate and communicate the provisions of its collective agreement” and will be “governed by the other parts of the SEBAC 2017 agreement.” Wage concessionsFa. half ($769 million) of the expected savings over the next two fiscal years are the result of a wage freeze. Under the concession contract, the salaries of government employees are frozen for the 2018 and 2019 fiscal years and employees (many of whom worked in fiscal 2017 under contracts that expired in June 2016) are expiring any retroactive pay increase. In addition, the concession contract requires government employees to take three long days in fiscal 2018 (the state will receive $36 million), but guarantees 3.5 percent pay increases for government employees in fiscal 2020 and 2021. The State police will not be guaranteed the same increases as those described in SEBAC because they did not accept the wage changes, but there is still a pending employment contract that will bring a potential increase in costs to the state, as it addresses budgetary challenges.
