Labor’s Litany of Dangerous Ideas:
The Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act

STOP THE EXTREME AGENDA

 

Unions and their allies are promoting a bill that would destabilize America’s workplaces and impose a long list of dangerous changes to labor law. The proposal, called the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act (S. 420/H.R. 842), is a litany of almost every failed idea from the past 30 years of labor policy. The PRO Act would undermine worker rights, ensnare employers in unrelated labor disputes, disrupt the economy, and force individual Americans to pay union dues regardless of their wishes. Read more about the PRO Act’s numerous flawed proposals below.

The PRO Act as introduced in the 117th Congress and passed by the House includes a number of new provisions that were not in the original bill.  Members of Congress who co-sponsored the PRO Act in the 116th Congress should not feel bound to co-sponsor a different bill.

Read more about the PRO Act’s harmful provisions and contact your Senators to tell them to Stop the PRO Act.
