HARTFORD - The State Employees Bargaining Agent Coalition (SEBAC) today issued the following statement on Governor Ned Lamont’s executive order providing workers who contracted COVID-19 on the job with presumed worker’s compensation coverage: 

The news media last week thrust state employees' contractual benefits into the spotlight following Governor Ned Lamont's public remarks at his daily COVD-19 (novel coronavirus) briefing. His comments further renewed attempts by Republican legislators to push for unlawfully breaking collective bargaining agreements.

Despite all that union members have done to provide crucial public services during the pandemic, and the billions we have saved through SEBAC agreements, anti-worker special interests are attempting to undermine state employees’ collective bargaining rights.

On behalf of 45,000 state employees represented through SEBAC, many of them staffing the front lines in the struggle to contain the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to raise our voice in unequivocal condemnation of our nation’s oldest pandemic – racism.
