House Approval of PRO Act with Benefit Hardworking Americans
Updated On: Feb 07, 2020
In a victory for labor, lawmakers in the House of Representatives just passed the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, legislation that would comprehensively update the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) to benefit workers.
“In approving the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, the House agreed to restore fairness to the economy at a time when income inequality has stifled the ability of far too many hardworking Americans to earn a decent wage that allows them to support their families. The PRO Act will strengthen the NLRA so that workers seeking to organize a union and negotiate higher wages and better benefits will be protected. Workers deserve a safe workplace, the ability to stand together and negotiate better working conditions, and to live a middle-class lifestyle." - Teamsters General Pres. Jim Hoffa
