New Hampshire State House of Representatives Stop Right-to-Work Bill After United Association Members Robust Outreach

Friday, June 4, 2021

After the New Hampshire State House of Representatives voted yesterday to postpone a proposed anti-worker “Right-to-Work” bill, United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters (UA) General President Mark McManus hailed the vote as a victory for workers and a strong example of the organizing power of the United Association:

“Here in New Hampshire, workers know that ‘Right-to-Work’ really means ‘Right-to-Work-for-Less.’ Anti-worker politicians can keep trying to pass these bills, but the Brothers and Sisters of the United Association will keep organizing to defeat them,” said Mark McManus, General President of the United Association. “Right-to-Work has no business being the law of the land, and our members in New Hampshire made sure their state legislators heard that loud and clear. We will keep fighting anti-worker laws here and across the country to ensure fair wages, safe jobsites, and the ability to organize and collectively bargain.”

“After a robust outreach campaign, including hundreds of emails, letters, and phone calls to their state legislators, UA members here in New Hampshire successfully defeated another attempt to weaken labor standards and pay workers less,” said Harry Brett, International Representative for the United Association. “The United Association will never stop fighting to protect our members – and yesterday’s victory is another sign that anti-worker ‘Right-to-Work’ laws have no place in our country.”
