State Court Security Officers attended a formal Contract signing with Chief Justice Linda Stewart Dalianis on June 15, 2017. Business Agent Rick Laughton and the Court Security Officers negotiated a two- year agreement which included wage adjustments and pay raises for the next two years. The contract with the Administrative Office of the Courts also includes additional 4- and 5- day positions with state health care benefits. Equipment concerns raised by the membership, and negotiated by the Teamsters, resulted in an agreement for the AOC to upgrade flashlights, provide puncture- proof gloves, and issue uniform blazers to new hires. These 150 men and women provide security in the Courts throughout NH for the benefit not only of the public that utilizes the Courts but also the Staff that work within the Courts.
