Right-To-Work Bill Fails In New Hampshire

June 4, 2021

New Hampshire will not become a right-to-work state this year or next year.

Senate Bill 61, a proposal to ban unions from charging dues to nonmembers for the cost of representation, failed Thursday, June 3 in the New Hampshire House of Representatives, with 175 voting in favor and 199 voting against. Some Republicans joined Democrats in opposing the bill, as The Center Square reports.

Supporters of right-to-work laws argue that people should not have to pay union dues if they don’t want to and that the presence of unions results in fewer jobs available in a given state. Some also note that labor unions are donors and supporters of the Democratic Party. Meanwhile, those who oppose right-to-work laws argue that they depress wages and result in fewer protections for workers.
