Unions help build a better life for working people, but outdated laws have hampered our basic right to join together and negotiate for better pay, benefits and working conditions. A new bill, the Protecting the Right to Organize Act, would modernize our nation's labor laws.

Now, with the new NAFTA back on the table, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka will host a series of town hall meetings this June to discuss how the labor movement is demanding a better deal for working people.
President Trump didn’t want to end this shutdown—the collective action of working people demanded it. By marching, rallying and protesting together, we forced him to the table and ensured that the labor and dedication of our public servants will not be taken for granted.
