Congress to Vote on PRO Act
3/4/2021

Take Action on the Greatest Threat to the Construction Industry -- Union and Open Shop

Take action now and tell your members of Congress and President Biden to oppose the misleadingly named Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act (H.R. 842/S. 420), as the House of Representatives is expected to vote on it the week of March 8. The PRO Act would provide unions with additional and significant economic weapons without regard to their detrimental impact on workers, employers -- union and open shop -- and the economy. If enacted, the PRO Act will, among other things, eliminate all prohibitions on picketing against any employer, even those having nothing to do with a labor dispute; impose a "backdoor card check" exception to employees' well-established right to a secret ballot election; effectively repeal 27 states' right-to-work laws; and impose mandatory third-party arbitration in which a union and an employer do not reach agreement, undermining the collective bargaining process.
