The PRO Act
The PRO Act is once again front and center of the AFL-CIO’s legislative agenda. Action currently resides in the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee and is being closely monitored by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) who has plans to bring the bill to the Senate floor for a vote in July 2022.
The PRO Act clearly determines who can be represented by the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) and that the bill does not change the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) definition of an employee. The PRO Act has nothing to do with taxes.
A resolution to support the PRO Act took center stage at the AFL-CIO Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in June when it was voted on and adopted by the convention body.
