The PRO Act Means More Power For Union Members

When workers organize, mobilize, and strike together we can build power and win the wages, benefits, and working conditions we need and deserve. But that can be extremely difficult when our current laws keep the balance of power tilted in favor of CEOs and the super-rich.

The problem is, when CEOs and the 1% hold so much power, our economy and laws stay rigged in favor of the wealthy. They get richer while our wages stay stagnant and our working conditions get worse. We need big change.

The Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act (H.R. 2474) is historic legislation that will put power in the hands of workers and reverse decades of legislation meant to crush unions. The bill will completely change labor law as we know it and shift power away from CEOs to workers.

The House of Representatives may vote on the PRO Act soon, so we must push our Members of Congress to do the right thing and support this bill.

AT&T made big promises to create jobs if Congress passed a big tax cut for corporations. But instead of creating jobs, AT&T continues to cut jobs, and the company is stonewalling workers who want a fair contract that keeps jobs in our communities. It's time for Congress to launch an investigation to find out what happened to the billions of dollars of our money that they gave away to AT&T and other corporations that are cutting jobs.

We need to let Congress know that keeping American workers employed and our communities strong should be their top priority.
