Derry officials unhappy with small turnout on workshop for negotiation information
Five out of the seven town employee unions don’t have a contract and the workshop was established at the public’s request for residents to offer suggestions about the town’s future collective bargaining goals, said Acting Administrator Larry Budreau.
“I think we all thought that having this workshop would be a good idea,” Osborne said. “I was very hopeful that it would bring out folks who I know are concerned about contracts, and I see eight people in here . . . it just occurs to me that the apathy in this town at times is disgusting.”
Martin said she only wanted to offer a comment to “ensure that when you are looking at offering a contract that care is taken to compare what’s available in the private sector to that which would be provided to municipal employees.”Martin added that she didn’t have any specific concerns but it “seems to me that we don’t always compare it to the private sector, so I just ask that that be done.”
