Pass the PRO Act

It’s time for our elected representatives to finally keep their promises and stand with American workers, not CEOs and billionaires. That’s why workers are uniting and demanding Congress pass the PRO Act now.

Why we're fighting to pass the PRO Act now

We want to be paid fairly for our work and have access to quality, affordable healthcare, safe working conditions, and time off to spend with our families. But our outdated laws make it nearly impossible for us to join together to make changes at work and too often, when we do speak up, we are punished or fired.

The PRO Act will change that. It will increase penalties for corporations when they retaliate against workers who come together to speak out for better pay or working conditions. It will make it easier for employees to form a union in their workplace to negotiate for better pay and working conditions, safety protections, reasonable schedules and other conditions. It will give union workers more tools to make sure their employers are sticking to the terms of the contracts they've negotiated.

Tell Your Senators to Support Workers and Pass the PRO Act

Our rights as workers are on the line. Decades of corporate greed have stripped away worker power — fattening the pockets of executives while working people struggle to get by. The majority of Americans agree that workers should be paid fairly for our work, get quality healthcare, have safe working conditions and time off to spend with family — and shouldn’t be punished for speaking up for their rights.

That’s why we — the working people of the United States — are uniting to demand our senators pass the PRO Act immediately.  

The PRO Act would give workers, not large corporations, power over our livelihoods. This bill would help ALL workers regardless of industry by preventing employers from interfering in the process of forming a union and finally holding employers accountable with meaningful penalties for violating workers’ rights.

It’s time for the Senate to stand with the workers who elected them. We demand that our Senators keep their promise to working Americans and pass the PRO Act.

To: The United States Senate

Dear Senators,

The workers who voted for you cannot afford to wait for the workplace rights and dignity that we need to survive. Keep your promises, protect workers, and pass the PRO Act now.

Sen. Mark Warner promised "to show that we can get the Senate to actually work." Yet he is one of three Democratic holdouts refusing to co-sponsor the PRO Act, even after it passed the House with bipartisan support.
...This bill would be the first major worker-friendly labor law reform since the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) of 1935, would significantly expand workers' ability to join and organize unions, and level heavy penalties on employers who stand in their way.
All members of the Senate's Democratic caucus have co-sponsored the bill except for Sens. Mark Kelly and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona and Mark Warner of Virginia. Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia said last week that he will support the bill.
