Why we’re fighting to pass the PRO Act now
We want to be paid fairly for our work and have access to quality, affordable healthcare, safe working conditions, and time off to spend with our families. But our outdated laws make it nearly impossible for us to join together to make changes at work and too often, when we do speak up, we are punished or fired.
The PRO Act will change that. It will increase penalties for corporations when they retaliate against workers who come together to speak out for better pay or working conditions. It will make it easier for employees to form a union in their workplace to negotiate for better pay and working conditions, safety protections, reasonable schedules and other conditions. It will give union workers more tools to make sure their employers are sticking to the terms of the contracts they’ve negotiated.
