The Professional Firefighters Of New Hampshire Praise Legislators For Voting Down ‘Right To Work’

H.B. 323 would have dealt a blow to collective bargaining in the Granite State

In a major victory for public employees, the New Hampshire House of Representatives today voted down a bill that would have crippled collective bargaining and silenced the voices of workers across the state.

H.B. 323, which would have prohibited employers and labor organizations from including fees for non-union members in collective bargaining agreements, was defeated by a vote of 212-141.

“In November, the citizens of New Hampshire voted in a legislature more focused on issues like jobs and the economy, rather than out-of-state interests,” said David Lang, President of the Professional Fire Fighters of New Hampshire. “It is clear from today’s vote that ‘Right- to- Work’ is still not wanted or needed in New Hampshire. This has always been an unnecessary distraction, and I’m pleased that today the bill was killed so we can move on to the issues that matter to New Hampshire.”

1. Great!

Firefighters are the kind of professionals who realize how important unions and the bargaining rights they protect can be.
