Right-to-work debate back in Concord today
The Senate Commerce Committee is set to hold hearings on the right-to-work bill, HB 1677, and HB 1645, which would allow public sector employers to ask for votes to decertify a union.
A high priority for the House Republican leadership since the last session, the right-to-work bill was passed by the House last month, but short of the votes needed to override a veto from the governor.
The Senate also passed a right-to-work bill last session. It failed after the governor vetoed the meaure.
The Senate takes up a third bill targeting unions on Thursday, when the Executive Departments and Administration Committee holds a hearing on House Bill 383, which would eliminate fees to cover the costs of negotiating collective bargaining contracts for state workers who are not union members.
