Rob's Priorities

Organized Labor

Unions have been a pathway to financial stability for so many working families, many of them immigrants to the United States. However, since the early 1980s, the unionization rate has fallen by nearly half, as unions have come under attack and the right to organize has been curtailed. I am proud of the broad support our campaign has earned from organized labor. As a Member of Congress, I will fight to:

  • Uphold the right of our brothers and sisters in organized labor to organize for fair wages, safer working conditions, and respect for workers;
  • Pass critical legislation like the PRO Act and the Public Service Freedom to Negotiate Act; and
  • Support apprenticeship programs and other initiatives to train our workforce for well-paying union jobs that can lead to life-long careers and middle class opportunities.
