Gov. Chris Sununu and New Hampshire’s largest state employee union remain at odds over a contract, despite eight months of bargaining.
Negotiators for the State Employees Association originally proposed an 8% annual pay increase, while Sununu wanted a $250 flat raise in the first year of the contract and a 1% increase after that. A fact finder’s report recently recommended 4 % raises, which the union supports. But Sununu is now calling for 2.3 %.
