Under the agreement with the Stamford Municipal Nurses Association, which represents 38 school and public health nurses, union members will go without a raise for the 2019-20 year and take a less costly medical plan, in exchange for no layoffs.
"The city's estimation of layoffs may increase over time and will likely result in multiple rounds of layoffs," said a spokesman for Mayor David Martin. "We anticipate the next round could occur as soon as mid-August.”
According to Arthur Augustyn, a spokesman for Mayor David Martin, the city needs to cut about $32.2 million from Martin’s $630 proposed budget in order to maintain its mill rate and not increase taxes for Fiscal Year 2020-21.
“All of our contract proposals have included the continuation of generous wages and benefits," maintains the Stamford company.
