AFP-NH Disappointed in House Right to Work Vote
WINDHAM – Americans for Prosperity (AFP) New Hampshire is expressing disappointment in today’s House vote to deny workers the right to choose whether to belong to a union.
“We believe NH workers should have the freedom to choose whether or not to join a union. It is disappointing that the House would vote to deny workers that right,” said Corey R. Lewandowski, State Director of Americans for Prosperity-New Hampshire. “Becoming a Right to Work state leads to more job opportunities and attracts new employers to a state. With this vote, the House is choosing to make NH less competitive with other states that do have Right to Work laws.”
This year’s Right to Work legislation, HB 323, was voted down in the House 212 to 141.
“We will continue to support Right to Work legislation in this state so that our workers will gain increased freedom of choice and our state will see increased economic expansion and prosperity,” Lewandowski continued.
