The Nashua School District resumed negotiations with the Nashua custodial union in September 2016 following a decision by the New Hampshire Public Employee Labor Relations Board (NHPELRB) that ruled in favor of the union about privatizing services. Subsequently, the NHPELRB denied the Nashua Board of Education's request for a rehearing. The Board is considering an appeal to the decision.
The NHPELRB initially was responding to an unfair labor complaint filed December 2015 by AFSCME Council 93, which represents Nashua custodians.
As you may recall, o
n September 16, 2015, the Nashua BOE voted
on two motions that together addressed the delivery of custodial services in our District.
The first motion approved to terminate the Board of Education's collective bargaining agreement with the local AFSCME chapter, as it "relates to those positions identified as custodial in section 2.2 of the agreement effective June 30, 2016." The second motion initiated a process to solicit proposals to obtain cleaning services in our schools and offices.
