IN THE NEWS
Pass the PRO Act
Contact your senator and let him/her know that you support the PRO Act. What is the PRO Act, you may ask? The PRO Act is legislation that has already been approved by the house and now it is being stalled in the senate. We need the PRO Act to finally give all workers the freedom to belong to a union without the fear of retaliation from the company. We need the PRO Act so Unions can finally have the power that was taken from the labor movement by the passing of the Taft-Hartley Act, in 1947. We need the PRO Act because we want a better America for all, not just for the few that have it all. Call your senator today, and urge them to pass the PRO Act.
