Republican Gov. Chris Sununu says he’s confident a contract deal will be reached with state employees, despite a decision by workers’ unions to declare an impasse.
The unions declared an impasse Tuesday after months of negotiating. Rich Gulla, president of the State Employees Association, says their experience bargaining with the state does not reflect the reality that the state’s economy is stronger than it has been in years, and that Sununu’s team offered unrealistic, concessionary proposals.
