Nashua police union close to contract
A newly proposed contract between the Nashua Police Supervisors Association and the Nashua Police Commission was reviewed by the aldermanic Budget Review Committee on Thursday. The bargaining agreement, if approved, will run from July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2015.
In November, the Board of Aldermen initially approved a prior agreement with the police supervisors, but Mayor Donnalee Lozeau vetoed a provision in the contract that would have allowed members to pay for retroactive health care costs using sick days. That original agreement, however, which included a combined 6.7 percent wage increase for sergeants and a combined 7.7 percent pay hike for lieutenants over a four year period, was never ratified and the unresolved resolution died at the end of last year.
“A little over a year they will be paying back what they owe,” Bennett said of the police supervisors.
Seusing said the supervisors have been working without a contract for nearly three years, adding he is hopeful aldermen will approve the proposal.
“I think it is very fair,” Alderman Ken Siegel said of the agreement, urging the committee to support the contract.
The committee voted unanimously to recommend final passage of the bargaining agreement. The full Board of Aldermen, however, will still have to vote on the proposed contract before it is officially ratified. It is expected to be addressed at the board’s next meeting, according to Alderman-at-Large David Deane, board president.
