NYS Sends Letters to Those Picked for Layoffs


The 900 New York workers who are scheduled for layoffs at the end of the year are receiving letters in the mail from the state government.
The letters are advising the workers about their rights under union contracts and civil service law, including an option for some workers to “bump” a colleague with less seniority.
Final layoff notices won’t be sent until early December.
Gov. David Paterson tapped the 900 workers in October as part of his plan to address the state’s budget deficit. He says the cuts will save $250 million.
