Rep. Seth Magaziner called for the passage of the PRO Act in a media briefing in front of a Starbucks in Warwick, citing the coffee chain’s “illegal union-busting actions.” Magaziner highlighted the importance of the right to form a union, arguing that when workers band together to collectively bargain, they secure higher wages, better benefits, and safer working conditions. He argued that, as unions have come under attack from wealthy special interests and big multinational corporations, all workers have paid the price. The PRO Act aims to empower workers to organize by preventing retaliation against those exercising their right to join a union, establishing safeguards to ensure free, fair, and safe union elections, and preventing employers from interfering in elections.
