State GOP eyes unions

Connecticut Repblican lawmakers are taking aim at state unions.

House minority leader Larry Carero, of Norwalk, joined other lawmakers yesterday to say that taxpayers should no longer be forced to pay tens of millions of dollars a year for union reps to do union business on the job.

Unions fired back saying local union officials solve problems before they escalate and that saves both time and money.

Gov. Dannel Malloy weighed in saying union leaders working on the job is an established practice, and he would not change that at this time.
