Govt Workers Sue Connecticut to Avoid Returning to Work

Government employees are suing Connecticut to avoid returning to work, arguing that commutes contribute to climate change.

Public employee unions in Connecticut are insisting their members continue to have the option to work full time from home, citing environmental and legal concerns. Democratic governor Ned Lamont allowed government employees to work exclusively from home during the pandemic and is now resuming pre-pandemic guidelines that allow government employees to work from home part-time. The unions are refusing to comply with the reopening plans and are demanding a new telework agreement with the government.
