Un-American Attack on Workers' Unions is the Sad New Normal for Sandoval County

Even though Sandoval County's "Right to Freeload" ordinance is not on the October 19th agenda, we still need you there to speak out and tell commissioners to stop wasting tax payer money and attacking our family's wages with this anti-worker ordinance, so called "right to work."

The October 5th Sandoval County Commission meeting hearing on so-called "Right to Work" was a DARK and Dreary moment for New Mexico politics.

See PHOTOS from the meeting HERE

County Commissioners are being misled and siding with obscenely wealthy and shadowy organizations. Misinformed supporters are relishing a destructive attack on our organizations and everything we fight for - like fair wages, good benefits, job safety, and the freedom to negotiate freely with our employers through our unions.

It's Bad and it's wrong.

Here's what we witnessed:

  • Commissioners questioned our loyalty to country and said union members were damaging American institutions.

  • Commissioners threw around racial slurs and compared union members to criminals
  • Supporters of the Right to Freeload SCAM were shipped in from out of town by billionaire funded, and racist organization, Americans for Prosperity.

  • They called our brown skinned brothers, "parasites," but wouldn't say the same to the white union members attending the hearing

  • Americans for Prosperity, and their kissing cousins, Rio Grande Foundation did everything they could to make this "Right to Work" billionaire power-grab sound as American as apple pie. They cited bogus, junk-science studies that were paid for by their billionaire masters

The hypocrisy of their local right-to-work scam campaign is glaring.

An insult to one is an injury to all. Let's remain in this battle to defend our educators, our union families, and our fellow Americans. This type of political engineering, on behalf of billionaires, promises nothing to the American worker.

We will continue bringing in our community allies and fellow trade unionists to push back on these personal attacks.

Be there if you can. Keep putting on the heat!

District 1:  Commissioner Dr. James F. Holden-Rhodes
