Statement by New Hampshire AFL-CIO President Glenn Brackett on the Re-Introduction of Protecting the Right (PRO) Act

“The New Hampshire AFL-CIO stands in solidarity with our union siblings across the country in support of the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transform New Hampshire’s labor movement for the better. Here in New Hampshire, labor unions have been an essential asset to our state’s economy. Just take IBEW Local 490, for example. This local union boasts the largest comprehensive electrical training facility in the state of New Hampshire, and for decades, businesses from across the state have contracted employees out of this training program. Just imagine what we could do for our state if we were able to reform our country’s woefully inadequate labor laws. Speaking up for labor rights is within every worker’s rights—and workers shouldn’t lose our jobs for it. This legislation does it all for our working people: it removes barriers to organizing and bargaining, it holds employers and corporations accountable, and will make our economy work for everyone. 

America must build back better with unions by ensuring passage of the PRO Act.”
