The US House is making good on another promise next week with the Protecting the Right to Organize Act (PRO Act) being brought to the House floor for final passage. The PRO Act (H.R. 2474), which would strengthen collective bargaining rights for workers in private companies, was passed on a straight party-line vote by the House Education and Labor Committee in September. The proposal would reinstate the Obama-era union election “card check” process whereby workers could form a union by merely checking a box on a union representation card. Furthermore, it would also increase penalties on employers across the board and permit the NLRB to level monetary fines on an employer who wrongfully terminates a worker or “causes a worker to suffer economic harm.” Notwithstanding its imminent passage in the House, the bill faces an uphill battle for approval in the republican-controlled Senate.
