The Pro Act Legislation – Measuring True Impact On Construction: The Law to Protect the Right to Organization (PRO) Act, which is currently making its way through Congress, seeks to reverse decades of federal policy. Despite its name, PRO protects much more than the right of workers to organize and bargain collectively. In fact, PRO would expand the economic weapons available to unions at the bargaining table, in the workplace and beyond. While pro-union laws raise obvious concerns for open shop floor contractors, unionized contractors may not be aware of the negative impact it could have on them. In this episode, AGC CEO Stephen Sandherr explains exactly HOW and WHY this law has the potential to cause significant disruption to the construction industry for businesses and the workers they employ, upsetting the delicate balance between rights and restrictions established for decades by the NLRB, the courts and Congress.

In short, the measure is an unprecedented attempt to fundamentally change dozens of well-established labour laws that would create conditions in which unions have virtually all their influence over collective bargaining with union enterprises and the organizing efforts of open-shop companies. At the same time, the measure would force employers to disclose private information about their employees, deprive workers of the right to a secret ballot and trigger an unprecedented wave of social unrest.
