NH workers say payroll system costs them pay; union planning to file unfair labor practice

Associated Press

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- The union representing most of New Hampshire's state workers plans to file an unfair labor practice over payments to about 1,000 workers who get higher hourly pay for working undesirable shifts.

Diana Lacey, president of the State Employees' Association, said Thursday that the union and state have failed to resolve what she says is a problem with the state's payroll computer system. Lacey said the union will seek relief from the New Hampshire Public Employee Labor Relations Board.

Lacey said some workers are being paid too much while many more are not receiving an hourly increase in pay they deserve because the payroll system is not recognizing when employees work different shifts.

The state's manager of employee relations did not return a phone call seeking comment.
