A call to action!
Posted On: Jun 18, 2019

Congressman Bobby Scott & US Senator Sherrod  Brown have introduced legislation in both the US House of Representatives and  US Senate that is fighting to Protect Workers Rights to Organize and form a Union.  We need to contact our Representatives and Senators to ask that they support and co-sponsor this legislation.  (HR 2474/S1306).

Specifically, the PRO Act would:

  • Establish penalties on predatory corporations that violate workers’ rights, and combat misclassification of workers as supervisors and independent contractors.
  • Strengthen workers’ right to strike for basic workplace improvements, including higher wages and better working conditions.
  • Create a mediation and arbitration process to ensure corporations and newly formed unions reach a first contract.
  • Authorize unions and employers to negotiate agreements that allow unions to collect fair-share fees that cover the costs of representation.
  • Streamline the National Labor Relation Board’s (NLRB) procedures to secure worker freedoms and effectively prevent violations.
  • Protect the integrity of union elections against coercive captive audience meetings. 

Please call these offices today, speak directly with someone and ask they support this legislation and sign on as co-sponsors:

Senator Tim Kaine               Senator Mark Warner           Congressman Wittman
