N.H. House again kills right-to-work bill

Union members and supporters sit in the gallery of the New Hampshire House of Representatives prior to a debate on a right-to-work bill. The House killed the measure Thursday.

CONCORD -- By a comfortable margin, the closely divided House of Representatives turned down Right-to-Work legislation that would block a union from requiring employees to join or pay dues.

Opponents completely short-circuited the debate over the bill (HB 1377) by convincing the full House to indefinitely postpone the entire topic for the rest of 2024.
