The more than 9,000 dues-paying members of the AFSCME union who work in the executive branch of state government will begin voting tomorrow. If a majority of the union’s members vote “yes” to ratify an “understanding” with the governor, all executive branch workers will take five unpaid days off in order to avoid 479 layoffs. Danny Homan is president of AFSCME Council 61, which represents those workers.
