Union faults state response to bomb scare

Print More

The union representing state workers and the Douglas administration are trading criticisms over the response to a bomb scare in a state office building last week.

Human Resources Commissioner Linda McIntire says Vermont State Employees’ Association representatives interfered with the bomb threat investigation by questioning the state security chief during the event.

The VSEA, meanwhile, says the state botched its response to the written bomb threat Friday morning at 133 State Street in Montpelier by not communicating with employees effectively.

The security chief for the Department of Buildings and General Services says the state is developing a new protocol for such situations.
