Courage, strength and action

It requires courage and strength to take bold action, and that’s exactly what New Mexico needs to change our path. NMBC is proud to see the recent action taken by two Sandoval County Commissioners, Jay Block and David Heil, who proposed a Right to Work ordinance on 6/15/17. A draft of the ordinance will be available at a later date.

Commissioner Block read a statement that you can listen to here: Sandoval County Commission - Right to Work Ordinance (starts 6 minutes into meeting). He discussed the dire unemployment situation in New Mexico and why a Right to Work ordinance would help. Commissioner Block also shared information about an individual being forced to sign a union membership card in order to continue employment at a Sandoval County school.

It’s a sad situation when someone is forced to pay union dues against their will. Because New Mexico is not a Right to Work state, most will pay the forced dues out of fear of losing their job. New Mexicans overwhelming want choice and the choice to pay union dues or not is an important one.

Speaking of Heroes . . . nominations are open for this year’s Hero of the Year award.
