NH Retirement Security Coalition Responds to Supreme Court Ruling on 2011 Legislation that Increased Employee Contribution Rates
The NH Retirement Security Coalition has long contended that promises made to our member employees should be enforced because our members uphold their promises each and every day that they go to work.
The Court’s decision today unfortunately allows public employers to renege on their promise of security in retirement. While this decision is disappointing, our members will continue to provide high quality service to the state and its cities, towns, and school districts.
We are deeply concerned about the long term impact of this decision on the people of NH.
We are carefully reviewing this decision in detail with our attorneys and members of the Coalition and we will offer further in-depth comment as soon as we are able to do so.
