The voters of Seabrook passed four collective bargaining contracts this past election cycle. These agreements were negotiated over the course of the past year, with a clear mandate from the Board of Selectmen that health care cost sharing be a part of any new agreements. These agreements accomplished that very important goal for all four unions. It is important to note that the Board themselves actively participated in these negotiating sessions, and we managed to do one years worth of negotiating without having the expense of legal counsel. Congratulations to everyone involved, including our partners in organized labor representing the men and women who work so hard for our community. The Board signed all four contracts last Friday, which is pictured below.
