Please write our New Jersey elected officials in our Congressional delegation and ask them to pass the Protecting the Right to Organize Act now.
All New Jersey members of the House of Representatives helped pass the PRO Act in the House last year. And even though New Jersey’s two U.S. senators favored the PRO Act, anti-worker legislators in the Senate blocked it. Undeterred, working people mobilized to elect pro-worker lawmakers to the Senate, House and White House. And we won!
The PRO Act is the cornerstone of the AFL-CIO’s Workers First Agenda. If it passes, it would:
- Empower workers to organize and bargain.
- Hold corporations accountable for union-busting.
- Repeal “right to work” laws, which were created during the Jim Crow era to keep White and Black workers from unionizing together.
Stronger unions mean higher wages, safer working conditions and dignity for all people who work. The PRO Act is our first step to get there.
