MEMORANDUM

Posted: December 29, 2022 11:23 AM
From: Representative Dan K. Williams and Rep. David M. Delloso, Rep. Joe Ciresi, Rep. Jennifer O'Mara, Rep. Steven R. Malagari
To: All House members
Subject: Protecting the Right to Organize – PA PRO Act
 
Brave workers who stand up for their rights do so to create better lives for their families. We need to ensure that our healthcare workers, retail workers, construction workers, factory workers, steel workers, and all Pennsylvania workers can fight for fair wages, a safe workplace, dependable healthcare, reasonable leave time, and retirement benefits.
 
To strengthen worker rights, I am introducing legislation making numerous changes and updates to the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Act. We need to establish that predatory corporations that violate workers’ rights are subject to penalties for worker misclassification. In addition, we need to ensure that newly formed unions and their corporate counterparts have access to mediation and arbitration as they work to complete their first contract. Lastly, we need to refine the process for unions to collect fair-share fees that would cover the costs of representing all workers in the collective bargaining unit.
 
By protecting workers, we are protecting a bright future for our Commonwealth. I ask that you support this legislation and join me in supporting our Pennsylvania workers.
