Pandemic Pay Update for SEBAC Members

SEBAC leadership has continued to advocate for pandemic hero pay that will recognize our state members’ sacrifices throughout COVID-19 and the critical role they, like all front-line workers played, in getting all of us through the worst of the pandemic.  

After months of negotiations, and an arbitration hearing, we have now submitted our reply briefs and will wait for a decision by the arbitrator. And as we’ve previously reported, arbitration is a normal part of the collective bargaining process in the public sector and assures that a neutral third party makes the decision when the bargaining parties have differences about the fairest outcome for all sides.  

All frontline workers, public and private, deserve recognition of the sacrifices they and their families made to keep Connecticut running during the height of the pandemic. 

Be sure to check the SEBAC website as well your own union’s website for updates on pandemic pay.
