Sign the petition: Demand Congress pass Protecting the Right to Organize (“PRO”) ACT
In a time when the richest Americans' wealth growth has increased by over 200% while wages remain stagnant for the rest of us. Corporations like Amazon and Google continue their relentless anti-union campaigns against workers organizing for better working conditions. We need our lawmakers to protect workers’ rights.
Anti-worker “right to work” laws remain a threat in many states and Black, brown, and Indigenous essential workers are working more high-COVID risk jobs without basic protections and benefits. It’s time for immediate action on a federal level so all workers have a fair chance at organizing their labor.
Last year, the Protecting the Right to Organize (“PRO”) Act passed in the House. On February 4, 2021, members of the House and Senate reintroduced the historical labor rights bill. We must put pressure on members to pass the PRO Act again in the House, and in the Senate, and President Biden must sign it into law.
If passed, the PRO Act would provide millions of workers across the country with additional protections to organize and collectively bargain.
More specifically, the legislation will:
- Penalize employers that interfere with their employees’ organizing efforts,
- Make explicitly clear that employers cannot interfere with employee unionization voting procedures,
- Enhance support for worker strikes and boycotts, and
- Close loopholes in federal employment and labor laws.
Sign the petition: Urge your lawmakers in the House and Senate to pass the PRO Act!
