AFT-NH TOWN MEETING ALERT- Call for Unity: Town Election Day- March 14th

Share This

Dear Union Colleagues and Supporters,

Your Union colleagues around the state have spent countless hours negotiating fair and reasonable contracts with their employers. On Tuesday, March 14th contracts will be presented to voters in many districts. There are five AFT-NH contracts on ballots on this date. There will also be important votes to approve budgets, stop outsourcing and save police department positions. On Saturday, March 18th, there will be an important town meeting in Pittsfield where we are asking people to show up and vote to restore the two police officer positions which are being cut. Public safety matters! We are asking that if you live in one the towns below that you take the time to be sure to vote in support of these contracts and encourage your friends and family to vote. When we act in unity, we make a difference every time!

Together by supporting those who work with our children and adequately funding our schools, we can reclaim the promise of public education. We also must make certain that vital public safety services are funded appropriately.

Please remind folks that they can register to vote at the polls with proper identification and proof of residency! There’s still time to get an absentee ballot for voting on 3/14 if you will be out of town or unable to vote. Voting locations and times are provided below!

Thank you for supporting your fellow union members or for being a supporter of AFT-NH members.

In Solidarity,

Doug Ley

AFT-NH President

VOTING INFORMATION FOR SATURDAY, MARCH 18TH

Town of Pittsfield

Please support our Pittsfield Town Employees, AFT #6214 at their annual town meeting. The Board of Selectmen and Budget Committee have recommended cutting two police officer positions. The Town has had the benefit of receiving a COPS grant which is a three-year contract. The decision to reduce the number of police officers, in addition to the grave concerns about public safety, also exposes the Town to paying back $40,000 +/- for not fulfilling the obligations of the grants. Please attend the meeting, support public safety and vote YES on Citizens’ Petition Article #8.

Pittsfield Elementary School Gymnasium      10am
