New Hampshire’s largest public employees union is standing by its decision to break off bargaining for its next contract, accusing Gov. Chris Sununu of proposing a “concessionary contract” that takes away more than it gives.

In an interview, State Employees Association negotiator Jim Nall disparaged the contract suggested by Sununu and said that it was a non-starter for negotiations.

The contract, Nall said, included a “very minuscule” increase in pay for workers and a paid family leave plan balanced out by clawbacks to other workers. But he and other union officials declined to go into detail on the nature of the offer.
