Support the PRO ACT

Corporations have taken advantage of weakened labor laws to undermine workers’ right to organize unions.  The resulting lack of union density hurts both our bargaining power for existing members and our ability to speak for auto workers across the industry, which drive down wages and benefits and workplace rights and protections.  This race to the bottom hurts all workers and especially hurts women and workers of color.


In order to rebuild a more fair and just economy, we want to lift up the Protecting the Right to Organize Act (PRO Act) as a critical issue for our members and working families more broadly.  The PRO Act is more than labor law reform, it’s protecting your rights in the workplace. The PRO Act restores fairness to the economy by strengthening federal laws that protect workers’ rights to join a union.  

We’re taking action to amplify our fight to ensure dignity and due process for workers, regardless of where we were born, who we are, or what industry we work in. We focus on the importance of the power of a union in that fight.

Our outdated labor laws are no longer strong enough to protect us in the workplace. 


High-profile corporations openly union-bust without facing consequences. Anti-worker lawmakers have passed wage-killing and racist right to work laws in 27 states. Inequality has skyrocketed as workers have been denied a voice on the job.


The PRO Act would change that. 


It’s the most significant worker empowerment legislation since the Great Depression. And it’s also a civil rights and economic stimulus bill. If we can get this passed, working people will thrive for generations to come.


It passed the House on March 9 with bipartisan support, and President Biden has urged Congress to send it to his desk. The Senate is the final obstacle.

Call your senators and tell them to vote YES on the PRO Act. Let’s show the Senate that people are pro-union across the country and across party lines.
