"...In the award, the arbitrator said that the fire fighters must be made whole with any loss of pay or overtime due to the suspensions, any record of the suspensions must be stricken from the fire fighters’ employment files and the town is now ordered not to interfere with any protected union activity, including political activity."



Congratulations to the members of the RFD. Your free speech has been restored. Good thing you have a union!

I forwarded the article to TRR. I'm sure they'll be happy to see the union doing its job.

As Local 1601’s president, Mark Tripp sent a letter to the editor of a local newspaper, explaining why the fire fighters were supporting these two candidates. Incumbent Selectmen Mark Belanger – who did not receive an endorsement from the fire fighters –issued a complaint to the town manager, claiming that Local 1601 had violated an ordinance prohibiting town employees from political activity.

Belanger demanded that the “instigators” be fired and the “supporters” be suspended without pay. Soon after, the town manager sent out letters notifying Mark Tripp that he would be suspended for one week without pay and the supporting nine Local 1601 fire fighters would be suspended for one day without pay.
This is just a case of Mark Belanger abusing his power as a Selectman. It’s nothing new. It’s also a case of Mark wasting tax payer money for his own political gain. Mark Belanger, who purports himself as “Mr. Conservative” who says he all about saving money, seems to have little issue wasting taxpayer money on vindictive and abusive actions that benefit only him.

Many in this town see through you Mr. Belanger…

Admin, you mentioned "vindictive and abusive actions". I think you left out "childish".
