Protect Your Right To Manage Your Business

The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote on the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act in early February, if not sooner.

This bill is currently the single greatest threat against the construction industry. The PRO Act would completely alter the industry by radically rewriting decades of American labor law at the expense of AGC member companies. 

The PRO Act is an unprecedented attempt to fundamentally change dozens of well-established labor laws without regard to their detrimental impact on open-shop firms, union contractors, and the economy. Already, this legislation has 218 cosponsors in the U.S. House of Representatives and 40 cosponsors in the U.S. Senate. If enacted, the PRO Act would completely upend decades of work to balance employee and employer rights and restrictions settled in courts, the National Labor Relations Board, and Congress.


Among the dozens of provisions, the PRO Act would:

End the prohibition on secondary boycottsEliminate workers’ privacy and expose them to potential intimidating union organizing tacticsImpose a new, modified form of card checkPromote slowdowns and intermittent strikesChange attorney-client confidentially to make it harder for employers to secure legal advice on complex labor mattersMandate interest arbitration with arbitrators who have no experience or knowledge of the industryStrip away employees’ Right-to-Work protections, which have been established in 27 states
