U.S. House passes bill to rewrite labor laws and strengthen unions
Updated On: Feb 17, 2020

One of the most significant bills to strengthen workers’ abilities to organize in the past 80 years passed the House on Thursday, February 6, 2020, the latest sign of momentum for the labor movement.

The Protecting the Right to Organize Act, known as the PRO Act, would amend some of the country’s decades-old labor laws to give workers more power during disputes at work, add penalties for companies that retaliate against workers who organize and grant some hundreds of thousands of workers collective-bargaining rights they don’t currently have. It would also weaken “right-to-work” laws in 27 states that allow employees to forgo participating in and paying dues to unions.
