Explaining the Protecting the Right to Organize Act

Sep 21, 2021

IAM Organizing Director Vinny Addeo draws on decades of experience to explain how the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act would help break down the barriers for working people to join unions.

The PRO Act will make it easier for working people to bargain together and win good contracts because it will:

  • Empower workers to exercise our freedom to organize and bargain.
  • Repeal “right to work” laws.
  • Ensure that workers can reach a first contract quickly after a union is recognized.
  • End employers’ practice of punishing striking workers by hiring permanent replacements. Speaking up for labor rights is within every worker’s rights—and workers shouldn’t lose our jobs for it.
  • Hold corporations accountable by strengthening the National Labor Relations Board and allowing it to penalize employers who retaliate against working people in support of the union or collective bargaining.
  • Create pathways for workers to form unions, without fear, in newer industries like Big Tech.
