As the Executive Branch contract negotiations continue, Matt Newland, NH Manager of Employee Relations has called for all master bargaining sub-unit team members to convene this Thursday, April 11 at 8:30 a.m. at NH Fire Academy, 98 Smokey Bear Blvd, Concord. Master bargaining sub-unit teams participate in agency level negotiations, such as the Dept. of Transportation or the Sununu Youth Services Center.
Typically, these sessions are scheduled well in advance allowing sub-unit team members appropriate time to adjust their work schedules and to permit their supervisors adequate time to address staffing needs that may result from a team member’s absence. We realize this last minute scheduling may lead to hardships in some worksites and perhaps even adversely affect delivery of critical services. As this scheduling was requested specifically by
Matt Newland on April 4th, any questions or concerns your supervisor or department head have should be addressed directly to him at firstname.lastname@example.org or 271-8225.
Please note, the SEA master bargaining team did advocate for more advance notice, to no avail. We understand this may be inconvenient, but we do appreciate your participation on Thursday.
