Call Congress to Pass the PRO Act

ProAct_800x800

For too long corporations have rigged the rules of organizing, using extreme measures to stop working people from exercising our freedom to join together in union to negotiate for better wages and working conditions. Our woefully outdated labor laws no longer serve as an effective means for working people to have our voices heard. A new bill in Congress, H.R. 2474, would restore power to workers by updating labor law.

The Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act (H.R. 2474) is a historic piece of legislation that will help bring balance to our economy by putting power in the hands of workers.

On October 16, thousands of workers across the country are taking action to call on Congress to pass the PRO Act. Join by calling 844-505-2803.

The PRO Act would strengthen our weak labor laws and help stop companies from breaking them. It would stop companies from retaliating against workers for exercising democratic rights. It would help newly organized employees negotiate a fair contract. It also would ban permanent replacement workers during strikes, and eliminate state “right to work” laws that have lowered wages and eroded health care and retirement benefits.

These reforms would give working people the opportunity to gain back a fair share of the profits we help create.

Ask your representative where they stand on the Protecting the Right to Organize Act, H.R. 2474, and whether they will co-sponsor this important bill. Join with workers across the country and take action today. Call 844-505-2803 to be connected with your representatives.

The PRO Act will:

  • Strengthen protections for workers forming a union
  • Increase penalties for companies that break the law and violate workers’ rights
  • Prevent the misclassification of workers as independent contractors
  • Deal a blow to “right-to-work” laws
  • Protect strikes and other protest activities 
  • End undemocratic “captive audience” meetings routinely made mandatory by companies

Ask your representatives to support working people and co-sponsor the PRO Act. Dial 844-505-2803 to take action.
