That of course was President Joe Biden, speaking to Congress back in April. The PRO Act has passed the House of Representatives and needs just three more co-sponsors in the U.S. Senate to get it to President Biden’s desk. The labor movement is now focused on four senators, including Democrat Mark Warner of Virginia. This week, the labor movement and its allies across the country are conducting an unprecedented mobilization to win freedom in the workplace by passing the PRO Act, which would give workers—including those in the gig economy—a real right to organize and bargain for better lives and for a better future for our country.
On today’s labor calendar, there are three PRO Act events, starting at 8:30 this morning with a rally at Senator Warner’s Tyson's Corner District Office, then at 2 there’s an online event, Catholic Social Teaching and the PRO Act and at 7 tonight, another online event, Passing the PRO Act and Building the Next Union Generation; see Calendar (above) for complete details.
