President Joe Biden continues to back and support provisions in the ABC-opposed Protecting the Right to Organize Act (H.R.20/S.567), which would violate workers’ free choice and privacy rights, force unions on employees who have voted against such representation, cost millions of American jobs and threaten vital supply chains.
On Feb. 28, 2023, congressional Democrats reintroduced the PRO Act in the 118th Congress. On June 20, ABC and the ABC-led Coalition for a Democratic Workplace sent opposition letters to the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions ahead of its June 21 markup. The bill passed out of committee on an 11-10 party line vote but is unlikely to be voted on by the full Senate and will not receive a vote in the Republican controlled House. However, President Biden and his administration are attempting to use agency rules and regulations to enact harmful provisions of the PRO Act without Congressional approval.

ABC and the CDW are leading the fight against the PRO Act, engaging with key audiences to stop this attempt to implement radical labor policies.
