Ending New Hampshire Forced Unionism

New Hampshire Right to Work Law

Right now, nearly 34,000 New Hampshire workers are forced to pay tribute to a union boss — or be fired. That’s just plain wrong. But forced unionism affects all Granite Staters because Big Labor’s inefficiencies, featherbedding, wasteful work rules and its union-label hate-the-boss mentality are driving jobs and businesses out of New Hampshire.

Over the last decade, Right to Work states saw three times as much job creation as New Hampshire.

Meanwhile, forced dues funnel money into Big Labor’s political machine to elect their handpicked politicians who are sure to vote to protect and expand Big Labor’s forced-dues empire.

For all these reasons, the New England Citizens for Right to Work believes that New Hampshire should pass a state Right to Work law to end forced unionism in the Granite State.

Ending Union-Only Monopoly Bargaining for Government Workers

Right now, New Hampshire law grants union officials monopoly bargaining power over public employees who may not want union boss “representation.”

Monopoly bargaining usurps those workers’ right to bargain on their own behalf and inevitably leads to poorer service at higher costs.

New England Citizens for Right to Work believes in ending union-only monopoly bargaining in the public sector.

Banning Union-Only Project Labor Agreements

Today, New Hampshire law allows so-called “project labor agreements” which discriminate against the vast majority of workers in the building trades who choose not to join a union.

These agreements have been shown to raise costs, borne by taxpayers, by as much as 25% while doing nothing to ensure that projects are completed safely or on time.

New England Citizens for Right to Work believes that government “project labor agreements” should be banned for both state and local government projects.
