U.S. Senator Warren, Rep Sherman Reintroduce The Nationwide Right To Unionize Act
On Thursday, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) reintroduced the Nationwide Right to Unionize Act, that would support the right to unionize by prohibiting states from banning union security agreements through “right-to-work” laws.
Twenty-seven states have enacted “right-to-work” laws that prevent unions from collecting dues from non-union members who are covered under a union-negotiated contract.
This bill was originally introduced in 2017 by Senator Warren as the Protecting Workers and Improving Labor Standards Act and again in 2020. A similar proposal is included in the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act.
The bill is more of a messaging bill before the November elections, therefore, has zero chance of passing Congress.
