Congress Should Take An All of the Above Approach to Supporting Unions
Posted On: Mar 29, 2023
Mar. 29, 2023 | OPINION | […] In recent weeks legislators introduced multiple pro-labor bills and the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee held a hearing on corporate union busting. Most importantly, a bipartisan group of lawmakers reintroduced the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act. Studies show that in order for workers to be able to freely and fairly join unions and bargain collectively with employers on a relatively even playing field, policymakers need to create a broadly supportive legal and political environment — which means Congress must pass multiple-pro-union bills and hold corporations accountable for their transgressions. And while passing major pro-worker legislation will be difficult with a divided Congress, there are still opportunities to make big and small changes that will add up to level the playing field for workers.
