SANTA FE, New Mexico – The right-to-work scam was voted down by the pro-worker majority on the New Mexico Senate Public Affairs Committee, a huge victory for labor and community activists who were speaking out against the controversial proposal in public hearings, rallies and town hall meetings.

By blocking the measure, the committee took a giant step toward saving New Mexico’s economy, and reaffirmed the importance of workers’ fundamental right to join together to advocate for better working conditions.

“I’d like to thank the members of the Senate committee who voted against this attack on the working men and women of New Mexico,” said Casper Cly, a member of the Laborers International Union of North America. “As a young man in the workforce, I strongly oppose legislation that would take away our voice and representation.”
