In Washington, D.C., Democratic lawmakers have once again introduced the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act. The PRO Act is, simply put, the most potentially impactful labor law reform since the codification of organizing rights in the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) in 1935. However, limitations in the NLRA’s language combined with decades of anti-worker court decisions have left unions under attack and more vulnerable than ever before. That is why it is crucial that you learn about how the PRO Act helps workers and engage with your elected officials in Washington to ensure that it gets passed.
Key aspects of the PRO Act include:
Bargaining rights for more workers
Expanded rights during organizing campaigns
Increased solidarity and access to justice for workers and union members
Enhanced penalties violations of workers’ rights
