The Pro ACT. What is it?

The Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act restores fairness to the economy by strengthen the federal laws that protect worker’s right to join a union.  Here are some of the things it provides workers;

  • It introduces meaningful, enforceable penalties for companies and executives that violate workers’ rights.
  • Expands workers collective bargaining rights and closing loopholes that corporations use to exploit workers.
  • Strengthens worker’s access to fair union elections and requiring corporations to respect the results.
  • Streamlines access to justice for workers who suffer relations for exercising their rights.
  • Authorizes a private right of action for violations of workers’ rights.
  • Gives workers the power to override so called “right to work” laws that prevent unions from collecting dues from the workers they represent.
  • Enhances workers right to support boycotts, strikes and other acts of solidarity.
  • Close loopholes in the labor law that erode workers’ rights.
  • Prevents employers form interfering in union elections.
  • Facilitates initial collective bargaining agreements.
  • Increases transparency in labor-management relations.

President Joe Biden has vowed to be the most pro-union President ever, lets make him prove it by passing the Pro ACT.  If you have any questions or comments you can always reach me at (916)407-8279
