Stronger Unions Make for a Stronger America

More and more of America’s workers want to join a union. This shouldn’t come as a surprise. When working people come together in a union, we can negotiate for higher wages, better benefits and working conditions, and we also have a real say in critical workplace issues like time off to care for a loved one, the deployment of technology and protection from all kinds of discrimination.

The PRO Act Will:

Nearly half of all nonunion workers
—more than 60 million people—
would join a union today if given the chance.

Why We Need the PRO Act

Our basic labor law, the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) of 1935, which is supposed to protect the rights of workers to form a union and bargain collectively, is broken. Ever since its passage, corporations and their political allies have conspired to render the law toothless. In recent decades, employers have been able to violate the NLRA with impunity, routinely denying workers our basic right to join with our co-workers for fairness on the job.

Why We Need the PRO Act

Call Your Senator

The Senate could defend our democracy at the ballot box by passing the For the People Act (S. 1) and expand our voice on the job by passing the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act (S. 420).
