Voters Oppose Giving Unions More Power

WFI Campaign Releases PRO Act Polling Data

This week, the Workforce Fairness Institute (WFI) campaign released new national polling data about voter sentiments towards the PRO Act. Unsurprisingly, voters strongly oppose giving unions more power and oppose efforts to take away right to work, secret ballots and an informed choice from workers.

“Three-quarters of voters surveyed said they are concerned about requiring employers to turn over employees’ personal information to union organizers, as the PRO Act would allow. Seven out of 10 voters are concerned the PRO Act could limit the ability of individuals to work as independent contractors. Fifty-seven percent said Americans should not be forced to join a union as a condition of employment. And 34 percent wanted unions to have more influence (though more than half of Democrats did).”

In addition to national polling data, the campaign released information on voters in Arizona and Virginia where both states again strongly oppose many of the provisions of the PRO Act. Northern Virginia Chamber President & CEO Julie Coons wrote that, “This survey shows that voters share these concerns and do not support radically changing labor laws at the expense of Virginia workers and businesses.” Greater Phoenix Chamber President & CEO Todd Sanders wrote that, “This survey shows that Arizona voters are alarmed that the PRO Act boosts union influence at the expense of workers, small businesses, entrepreneurs and Main Street consumers. Bottomline, if this legislation is enacted, it would force thousands of Arizona small businesses to close their doors forever and result in an unthinkable number of workers losing their job.”
RILA has been actively involved in pushing back against the PRO Act to ensure this damaging legislation never receives fifty cosponsors in the Senate. To learn more about RILA’s efforts and how to engage, please contact Evan Armstrong.
