Get to know the PRO Act

The Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act would strengthen federal laws that protect workers’ rights to join unions. Lawmakers introduced the bill in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate in February.

The PRO Act would give workers more power during disputes, penalize companies that retaliate against workers who organize, grant collective-bargaining rights to many workers who don’t have them, and weaken falsely named “right-to-work” laws that allow employees in 27 states — including all 11 states in the Southern States Millwrights’ jurisdiction — to benefit from union representation without paying dues. Right-to-work laws rob locals of the resources they need to bargain well, enforce contracts, build solidarity, and survive labor disputes.
