AFL-CIO Launches West Virginia Ad Campaign Boosting the PRO Act

The AFL-CIO launched a major ad campaign in West Virginia this week, airing statewide television and radio ads promoting the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act. The advertising campaign is aligned with a national week of action, from April 26 to May 1, mobilizing working people to demand Senate passage of the landmark worker rights bill. 

“The PRO Act is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to give working people a stronger voice on the job,” said AFL-CIO spokesperson Kalina Newman. “We’re making our case by reminding West Virginians of what they already know: It shouldn’t be this hard just to get by.”

The radio ad features a personal testimonial from Mike Mosteller, a Barboursville worker who was fired for trying to organize a union. The TV ad, which highlights U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin’s support for the bill, can be viewed below.
