About New England Citizens for Right to Work

New England Citizens for Right to Work is a grassroots citizen action network of New Hampshirites dedicated to the proposition that no worker should be forced to join a union or pay union dues just to keep a job.

Why Right to Work?

Today, 34,000 New Hampshire workers are forced to pay union dues or fees — or be fired. We believe that this is not right and should not be allowed.

Additionally, Right to Work states saw over two times more job growth and dramatically higher income growth compared to forced-unionism states in general and New Hampshire specifically. So why are New Hampshirites still being forced into a union?

New Hampshire taxpayers also bear the brunt of forced unionism in the form of fewer jobs, higher taxes, and worse public services. This could easily all be changed.

Taking Action

We believe in ending forced unionism in all its forms by passing a state Right to Work law.

But what does that mean? A Right to Work law guarantees that no person can be compelled, as a condition of employment, to join or not to join, nor to pay dues to a labor union. Section 14(b) of the Taft-Hartley Act affirms the right of states to enact Right to Work laws.

This would end union-only monopoly bargaining, and ban union-only “project labor agreements.”

As a result, we could build a better economy and create more job options for New Hampshirites while providing more freedoms and rights than forced-unionism.

To that end, our priority is to inform and educate Right to Work supporters and the public about the forced-unionism issue and to empower those same people to urge their elected officials and candidates to support Right to Work.

New England Citizens for Right to Work works closely with the National Right to Work Committee and other Right to Work supporters to end forced unionism.
