"Right to Work" for Less coming up in House and Senate this week (2018 Session Update #6)

UPDATE 2/6 at 4:01PM - Right to Work for LESS legislation is dead in Senate Public Affairs. long live our UNION!
This week, put the brakes on Union busting in New Mexico.
 
Two "right to work" bills will be heard in committee at the Roundhouse this week. Please attend hearings in House Labor and
Senate Public Affairs if you're able, and please make phone calls to oppose these laws designed to destroy unions.

Need a quick refresher on why working people are opposed to these falsely named laws?

Tuesday, February 6


Senate Public Affairs is expected to hear a so called "Right to Work" bill, SB 179, on Tuesday afternoon in Senate Public Affairs, room 321.  Please contact members of that committee and ask them to stand strong with working people by voting "NO" on SB 179.

Please be kind to the people answering the phone--regardless of how their legislator is voting, they are simply working for all of us and deserve our respect.
