Déjà Vu? With the poisonous PRO Act stalled in the U.S. Senate, the White House and union bosses appear to be turning to ‘Plan B’ and preparing a ‘slew’ of executive actions to help unions.

After passing in the U.S. House of Representatives in February, the unions’ holy grail—the Protecting the Right to Organize Act (aka the PRO Act)—appears to be dying a slow death in the U.S. Senate.

Just as it happened ten years ago when the hallucinogenically-named Employee Free Choice Act died in the Senate, the unions had a back-up plan (‘Plan B’).

In this episode of Union Free Radio, host Peter List explains where the PRO Act sits in Washington right now, how its being held up, as well as the unions’ ‘Plan B’ and the ramifications on business owners, human resources, as well as the 59 million independent contractors in the U.S.
