CONCORD - Today, the New Hampshire Senate rejected a Republican bill, SB 651-FN, to weaken labor unions.
After the vote, Senator Kevin Cavanaugh (D-Manchester) issued the following statement:
“I commend my colleagues in the Senate for rejecting this anti-union legislation. We have seen time and again that so-called “Right to Work” legislation is wrong for New Hampshire. When we take power and funding away from our unions we deny them the necessary resources to advocate on behalf of their members for better pay and working conditions. This legislation was rejected by a bipartisan vote in committee and again today by a bipartisan vote on the floor. I am hopeful that moving forward we continue to work together on behalf of hard working Granite Staters - not on behalf of corporations.”
