Don’t be fooled: PRO Act is Anti-Worker

Tomorrow the United States House of Representatives is expected to vote on the PRO Act (H.R. 2474), a bill that would eliminate workers’ rights to choose to join a union.

Catrin Wigfall, a policy fellow at Center of the American Experiment specializing in education and labor policy, is calling on Minnesota’s congressional delegation to oppose the bill.

“The PRO Act is the opposite of pro-worker. It puts the interests of labor union bosses ahead of American workers and taxpayers,” said Wigfall. “This bill is an attempt to handcuff workers to unions by eliminating workers’ constitutionally protected rights and privacies. Minnesota’s congressional delegation should defend their constituents from union coercion and recognize they are smart enough to make their own decisions about union membership.”
