BRIDGEPORT, CT - The City and Laborer’s International Union of North America, Local 200 have signed a tentative agreement which calls for union members to take 6.5 furlough days to achieve the union’s targeted goal of $91,021 in savings to the City, announced the City of Bridgeport on Tuesday.

So far, Unaffiliated workers, LIUNA and the Typographical (Printer’s) Union are taking furloughs to help close the $2 million budget gap.

“Our membership voted overwhelmingly to work with the City, agreeing to take furloughs to help close the budget gap and avoid potential job losses for our members,” said Cory Bromley, LIUNA Local 200 Business Manager.

“Thank you to LIUNA members for stepping up to the plate and being leaders to assist us in closing the budget shortfall,” said Mayor Bill Finch. “We are continuing our negotiations with other City unions and look forward to similar decisions in the coming weeks.”
