CONCORD – Today, Senator John Reagan (R-Deerfield) introduced SB 61, so called “Right to Work” legislation to the Senate Commerce committee in an effort to limit the efforts of labor unions to negotiate for higher wages and safer working environments.
After the hearing, Senator Kevin Cavanaugh (D-Manchester) issued the following statement:
“So called “Right to Work” legislation has always been wrong for New Hampshire. Today we heard from Democrats, Republicans, elected officials, active and retired workers, and members of the public who agree that this bill has no place in New Hampshire. SB 61 does nothing to encourage the creation of new jobs and instead silences the voices of hard working Granite Staters by limiting the ability of our labor unions to negotiate for higher wages and safer working environments. I urge my colleges to oppose SB 61 and support our workforce.”
