Brothers and Sisters,
In New Hampshire, we fought for the freedom to bargain, advocate, and earn a fair wage to provide for our families. Now some state legislators, influenced by big corporations, are voting on so-called “Right to Work” (RTW) laws in New Hampshire. Last week, the State Senate voted in favor of “Right to Work”, and the bill now moves to the House.
The Granite State has a long history of workers and employers coming together to ensure equitable wages, benefits, and safe working conditions. RTW is not about freedom. It will restrict our freedom to have a meaningful voice in the workplace, and allow the government to dictate how workers and employers should conduct business together.
New Hampshire workers deserve the right to sit at the table and bargain for a fair contract without governmental interference.
If you live in New Hampshire, click here to find and email your representative today and urge them to stand up for working families. And please share this message with family and friends who live in the Granite State.
State legislators should focus on aiding the recovery of our communities from the COVID-19 pandemic by creating good jobs, not pushing laws that will hurt the income and freedom of all workers, and create more governmental regulation.
Thank you in advance for reaching out to our State House representatives and encouraging them to vote NO on “Right to Work.”
