“I think our intent was to begin discussions that will address some short-term issues ... and start talking about a long-term agreement now,” said Hooksett Superintendent Charles Littlefield, who also attended the meeting. “We don’t want to wait until 2016. We will be talking to Pinkerton as well, and I think it makes more sense that both agreements be discussed contemporaneously.”
“I was hoping we could start talking about a framework for a long-term agreement, or thinking we can say, ‘Let’s get this short-term issue addressed by early September and then meet again in, say, late September and start talking about something that goes beyond 2018,’” said Littlefield.
The two subcommittees set a tentative date for their next meeting for Sept. 17.
