Ask Senators Murray and Cantwell to Support The Building a Better America Plan
Updated On: Apr 13, 2022

American democracy is under threat today from decades of inequality, the dismantling of workers’ rights, a scourge of attacks on voting rights, and the failure to adequately invest in our families and communities. To save American democracy, we need democracy in the U.S. Senate.

That means passing labor law reform, voter protection legislation and the Build Back Better investment agenda with a simple 50-vote majority. 

Americans turned out in record numbers in 2020, electing a pro-worker House, Senate and White House. Working people voted for a bold, transformative agenda, including

Labor Law Reform:

  • The PRO Act — strengthening and modernizing our nearly century-old labor laws so workers have a right to speak out and form a union without employer interference.
  • The Public Service Freedom to Negotiate Act — giving every public service worker the right to a voice on the job

The For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act — guaranteeing no American citizen is denied the right to vote.

President Biden’s Build Back Better Agenda:

  • Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill — $1 trillion investment in roads, bridges, transit, rail, climate change mitigation, electric vehicles, clean drinking water, high-speed internet, resilient transmission lines and creating good-paying union jobs.
  • Building a Better America — $1.75 trillion investment in working families, education, childcare, clean energy jobs, game-changing infrastructure projects and expansion of health care
    access (which also includes labor law enforcement with real penalties - a key provision of the PRO Act!)

While the Senate played political games, working people have struggled for years. Visit https://aflcio.org/workers-first-agenda TODAY and take three quick actions to let Senators Murray and Cantwell know you want them to support The Building a Better America Plan!
