Press Release
House Adopts Labor Provisions Championed by Sherman & Elizabeth Warren

Washington, D.C. – Today the House passed the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, which strengthens federal laws that protect workers’ right to join a union and it contains a provision that eliminates so-called ‘right-to-work’ laws nationwide. This provision is similar to legislation, the Nationwide Right to Unionize Act, that Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA) and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) introduced together last week.

Sherman has introduced the Nationwide Right to Unionize Act in every session of Congress since 2008. Today, this bill has 31 cosponsors in the House. Sherman consistently earns a 100 percent rating from the AFL-CIO. Sen. Warren joined the effort in 2017, introducing the same bill in the Senate.
