On June 21, the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee held a markup of ABC-opposed legislation, including the Protecting the Right to Organize Act, Paycheck Fairness Act and Healthy Families Act. Ahead of the hearing, ABC sent a letter to the committee highlighting concerns with the bills marked up in committee and urging members of the committee to oppose the partisan proposals being considered. ABC also joined with the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace to oppose the proposals.

The markup considered several ABC-backed and Republican-led amendments that would limit the damage of these anti-business, anti-worker legislative proposals, including amendments that would address the PRO Act’s provisions on secret ballot protections, employee privacy, independent contractors, secondary boycotts and joint-employer.
