LITTLETON — Historically non-union employees, some town office staff members, administrative staff at the fire and police departments, and several employees in the parks and recreation department are now eligible to have their own collective bargaining unit within the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union. On June 26, six town employees took the vote to form their own unit with AFSCME, largely to ensure wage security, equity and certainty and, in that regard, bring them up to par with the town’s union employees in the fire, police and highway departments and in the transfer station, Town Manager Jim Gleason said Monday. On Monday, July 17, the Select Board is expected to choose one of their own to serve on the team that will begin negotiations in August, followed by a proposed contract and a vote that will go to residents at the March 2024 town meeting.
