Pro-Union Federal Legislation Gains Momentum

The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) reports from Washington that there has been a continued push for federal legislation known as the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act. According to the NAM, this federal legislation would make it easier for unions to use card check; restrict opportunities for employers to communicate with their workers; apply pressure via secondary boycotts; and get access to employee shift and personal contact information. The NAM is aggressively fighting the legislation. A House markup is expected this October, and the bill will likely be considered by the full House shortly thereafter. 8/27/2019
