In the middle of the grief-stricken aftermath of President Trump’s acquittal, House Democrats passed the Protecting the Right to Organize Act (PRO Act). Despite its name, the bill goes much further than simply protecting unionization. 

The bill, which passed 224-193, is the most comprehensive, radical pro-union legislation pushed through Congress in recent history. It passed primarily along party lines, with a few Republicans voting for the bill. The PRO Act would decrease barriers for certifying unions, eliminate right-to-work laws, mandate employees pay union dues and even eliminate the possibility of workers being denied employment on account of an illegal immigration status.
