Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will speak about labor relations at a Monday event in Concord, N.H.
In addition to giving his typical campaign speech, Romney plans to highlight his support for right-to-work legislation, and specifically New Hampshire’s proposed right to work law, according to his campaign.
Right-to-work is currently a hot button issue in New Hampshire. The Republican-led state Legislature passed legislation this year that would have made New Hampshire a right-to-work state, meaning workers could not be forced to pay union dues as a condition of employment. Democratic Governor John Lynch vetoed the bill, and Republican leaders are trying to muster the votes to override the veto.
Romney will speak to members of the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce on Monday at 9:45 a.m. At noon, he will speak to the Manchester Rotary Club, and at 6 p.m., he will hold an open town hall at the VFW Post 483 in Nashua.
