Attends Rally of Non-Union Workers Demanding Answers From Lynch

Concord , NH – Jim Coburn attended a noon time rally today where dozens of state workers were once again asking John Lynch for answers. This rally comes less than two weeks after Coburn held a press conference calling on Lynch to solve an impasse with state workers concerned over the withdrawal of money from their state paychecks.

“These workers have still heard nothing from the Governor on the legality of these deductions, and the administration seems to have questions of their own as they continue to postpone the start of these fair share payroll deductions. All these folks want are answers to ensure that the money collected from them under this agreement is legal and equitable,” Coburn stated, again stressing “This is an issue of choice for state workers who choose to join or not join the union. These particular workers feel they are being denied that choice through the fair share agreement and simply want the answers the Governor has refused to provide.” (For more information on Jim Coburn please visit www.JimCoburn.com)
