    Protecting the Right to Organize

    Sen. Patty Murray (Wash.)—ranking member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee—and Rep. Bobby Scott (Va.)—chair of the House Education and Labor Committee—have introduced the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act. Following through on a key commitment to working people, this groundbreaking piece of legislation will take several steps to strengthen our right to collectively bargain to:

    • Repeal state “right to work” laws.
    • Facilitate a process for reaching a first contract.
    • Speed up union elections.
    • Provide stronger remedies for employees whose workplace rights have been violated.
    • Ban permanent replacement of strikers.
    • Permit secondary picketing.
    • Allow card check as a remedy for employer interference.
    • Ban captive audience meetings.
    • Narrow the definition of a supervisor and close the independent contractor loophole.
    • Provide a private right of action to individual workers.
