TEAMSTERS DEFEAT “RIGHT TO WORK” AGAIN IN NEW HAMPSHIRE

TEAMSTERS DEFEAT “RIGHT TO WORK” AGAIN IN NEW HAMPSHIRE
On Thursday Teamsters Local 633 helped defeat “Right to Work” (RTW) in the New Hampshire legislature. The bill was defeated 212 to 168 by the House of Representatives and was indefinitely postponed, which means it will not come back up for vote this legislative season.
“Resiliency is the hallmark of Teamsters Local 633, and this bill serves as a solid example of our Union never being complacent, defeating “Right to Work” every two years,” said Local 633 Principal Officer Jeff Padellaro.
“Right to Work is just wrong, and Teamsters Local 633 proved that once again,” said Joint Council 10 New England Secretary-Treasurer Tom Mari. “Local 633 leaders have had boots on the ground not just today, but everyday throughout the legislative session to make sure that Right to Work did not pass. Today’s vote was a victory for. Teamsters and all working families in New Hampshire.”
The Local 633 executive board was on the front lines of labor, making sure that RTW did not pass. Business Agent Rick Laughton and former Local 633 President Dennis Caza led the grassroots effort which included phone calls, face-to-face visits, visibility and testimony. Local 633 took their message directly to the State House, with Recording Secretary Scott Gove and Field Rep Traci St Clair testifying.
