NAHB and ABC Strongly Oppose PRO Act

Associations Release Statements About the Protecting the Right to Organize Act
by Staff

The NAHB believe that the Protecting the Right to Organize Act is very unlikely to pass the House.

The Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act has been reintroduced by congressional Democrats, and it has been met with mixed reactions from business associations. According to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the bill "would expand employers' liability for the labor practices of subcontractors and third-party vendors and narrow the circumstances under which an individual can work as an independent contractor - effectively gutting the contracting business model that serves as the foundation of the residential construction sector."

The NAHB has spoken out against the bill, stating that it would harm small businesses and undermine the economy. They argue that the PRO Act would allow unions to force their way into small businesses and impose contracts that would be detrimental to their operations.

Furthermore, the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) has also criticized the bill, stating that it would be a devastating blow to employees and employers. The ABC argues that the bill would overturn state right-to-work laws and force workers to pay union dues regardless of their personal beliefs. The debate over the PRO Act is likely to continue in the coming months as the bill works its way through Congress.
