Letter to the editor - Union bashing is bad for Montana


Last updated 1/29/2021 at 10:46am

Dear editor,

Organized labor is good for the economy of Montana.

I am urging all hardworking citizens of Montana to say no to House Bill 168 and Senate Bill 89. Both refer to the “right-to-work” legislation pushed by Randy Pope and the Montana Citizens Right to Work Coalition.

This is nothing more than union bashing backed by big business. Good-paying jobs are vital for the economy of our great state of Montana. They not only provide a good living for our citizens, but also are critical now that we are near the end of this horrible pandemic.

These good-paying jobs would not have been made possible had it not been for the hard work and sacrifice of our organized labor unions and the solidarity of dues-paying union members.

In conclusion, I urge all of our hard-working men and women to contact their state representatives and senators and ask them to support organized labor by voting “no” to any and all legislation that encourages the “right-to-work” concept.

This is bad for Montana.

Thank you

Jeff Dibblee, Havre, retired rail union man.
