Yet Again, Right To Work(For Less) Pops Up-NH Senate Vote SB217 Set For Thursday January 30th


From the SEA:

Right To Work for Less Just Won't Go Away

It wouldn’t be a NH legislative session if Right to Work (for less) wasn’t on the docket. The cookie cutter legislation that is so damaging to middle class working families came up again this week in the form of SB217, sponsored by Senator John Reagan, R-Deerfield.

Regrettably, earlier this week, the Senate Finance Committee backed the latest iteration of the bill after hearing familiar arguments from both sides of the always-controversial issue.

We are pleased and appreciate that Gov. Maggie Hassan expressed her opposition in a strongly-worded letter to the committee.

She wrote that a right to- work law would “undercut the fundamental right of employees to engage in collective bargaining with their employers and cause unnecessary economic harm to New Hampshire’s hard-working families.” The Bill will be voted on in the full Senate next Thursday, January 30. We urge all members to contact their state Senator and register your opposition to this bill that would be devastating to workers across the state.
