LIUNA Commends Introduction of the Richard L Trumka Protecting the Right to Organize PRO Act

Washington, D.C. (February 28, 2023) – Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – made the following statement today:

LIUNA commends the introduction of the Richard L. Trumka Protecting the Right to Organize Act (PRO Act) by House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Representative Bobby Scott (D-VA), Representative Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), and Senate Health, Education, Labor and  Pensions Chairman Bernie Sanders (I-VT).


The PRO Act would empower millions of Americans by strengthening protections for workers who choose to join a union and bargain for higher wages, better benefits, and safer working conditions. Too often when workers join with co-workers to form a union, employers work against them in every way possible – from retaliation and dismissal to bad faith bargaining. The PRO Act will level the playing field for America’s working men and women.


LIUNA urges Congress to pass this important legislation.



The half-million members of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – are on the forefront of the construction industry, a powerhouse of workers who are proud to build the United States and Canada.
