Unions: Furloughs not needed

The Associated Press

SANTA FE — Unions representing New Mexico state employees are speaking out against Gov. Susana Martinez’s plan to save money by furloughing government workers.

State Personnel Director Justin Najaka sent letters to union leaders this week letters indicating Martinez is moving forward with the furloughs. The notice comes after warnings from Martinez that New Mexico could run out of cash before the budget year ends in June, The Santa Fe New Mexican reported.
