  • Labor relations for most private sector employees fall under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). However, for those employees that are not covered under the NLRA, New Mexico guarantees the right to bargain collectively. See Right to Organize.
  • New Mexico has a separate statute guaranteeing collective bargaining rights to family child care providers. See Family Child Care Providers' Right to Organize.
  • New Mexico is not a "right to work" state. See Right to Work.
