Rep Damon Ely has introduced a bill, HB 85 Union Security Agreements, that takes away the rights of a county, municipality, or other political subdivision of the state to adopt a Right to Work ordinance. Worse than that, it retroactively takes away the rights of those 10 counties and the Village of Ruidoso that have already passed it.
It only takes 30 seconds to voice your opinion to the bill sponsor and the legislators who will vote one it.
Right to Work states have created more jobs, grown twice as fast, and have higher Gross Domestic Product than non-Right to Work states. Families have more disposable income in Right to Work states. Right to Work means: more people, more jobs, more money.
That’s the kind of improvement New Mexico needs, and why ten NM Counties have already passed Right To Work Ordinances. If HB 85 Union Security Agreements is passed, all the progress our state has made on increased worker rights will be undone. Our state can't afford to move backwards, putting working families further and further behind. Send an email to Rep Ely and others who will be voting and ask them to VOTE NO on HB 85.
