The Protect the Right to Organize (PRO) Act is the most comprehensive labor legislation in nearly a century. It makes it easier for workers to form unions and strengthens the power of unions when they are formed. It eliminates ‘Right to Work’ laws that have undercut the power of unions since they’ve been implemented. Building militant labor power is a crucial first step in making the Green New Deal a reality!
DSA has been running a pressure campaign to make the PRO Act a reality. Since the campaign kickoff in March, we have made nearly 800,000 phone calls. That convinced Angus King of Maine and Joe Manchin of West Virginia to announce their support for the bill. We are pushing to make a million calls and convince the remaining Democratic holdouts, Mark Kelley and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona and Mark Warner of Virginia, to join their colleagues in supporting worker power. We’ve also begun targeting Lisa Murkowski, Republican Senator of Alaska, a state with high union density and support for organized labor.
Silicon Valley DSA is mobilizing to phonebank in support of the PRO Act. Sign up for a shift here. We are joining for the phonebanking session with Anchorage DSA on Sunday, May 30 from 2-5pm, but comrades from across the country will be calling during the other shifts and you are welcome to sign up and join them too! Legislation simply codifies our power – it is our collective strength that is its source. Come wield our people power and phonebank to pass the PRO Act!
