Members of SEA/SEIU Local 1984’s Chapter 70 (Hampton Public Works) are taking their contract campaign to the people. Last weekend, members held a visibility event outside the town’s deliberative session at Winnacunnet High School.

The chapter reached a new contract agreement with town officials, but town residents still need to approve funding. The contract is warrant article No. 12 on the Town Meeting Day ballot, one of nearly 50 warrant articles on the ballot. It’s easy for an important contract to get lost amid that many decisions, so members will continue to work to remind residents that a “yes on 12” means supporting Hampton’s Public Works employees.

You can get a look at the day to day work of our Chapter 70 members on their Facebook page.
