Supreme Court Janus Ruling Deals Blow to Working Families in New Hampshire

Justices disregard facts, law with its ruling that strikes down 40 years of precedent CONCORD- The U.S. Supreme Court today issued a 5-4 decision in a case that had been bankrolled by corporate interests who wanted to rig the economic system even further in their favor. The ruling is a radical interpretation of the First Amendment and is a sweeping paradigm shift as it will make it more difficult for public workers to bargain collectively. Since 1854, a strong NEA-NH has helped create strong schools for students and even stronger communities that benefit all of us, because we know that our working conditions are also your child’s learning conditions. “For generations, unions have been the best path to the middle class for working people like you and me, said Megan

Reviewing the 2017-2018 Legislative Results

The 2017-2018 Legislative Session has come to a close, a little earlier than usual this year due to State House renovations. Here is a quick look back at the past two sessions in Concord, beginning with the 2018 Session. Established an Educator Death Benefit and Increased Funding for School Security Since Columbine, educators have too often been called upon to act as first responders to incidents of school violence. HB 1415 establishes a $100,000 death benefit for any school employee killed in the line of duty as a result of school violence. NEA-New Hampshire sincerely hopes that this benefit will never have to be paid, but we applaud the Legislature for passing this legislation as recognition of the changes that have come to our profession in the past 20 years.

NEA-NH Welcomes Passage of the School Employee Death Benefit Bill

Members urge Governor to sign bill into law CONCORD, NH – May 23, 2018 – The School Employee Death Benefit bill, along with an additional $10 million for school security upgrades, passed both the House and Senate today. There was a voice vote in the Senate, and the bill passed the House 262-76. The bill is now headed to the Governor. The most recent slaughter of students and educators in Texas is further evidence of the need for this bill for the surviving families of school employees who die from violence while doing their jobs. So long as school employees think of their students’ safety first, and they will in every instance, they are entitled to know that their families will have some degree of financial security should they die.
