Are the time’s a-changin’ for unions and Senator Manchin?
Good for you, Senator. But won’t the Republicans filibuster it?
Sen. Joe Manchin has thrown his support behind the PRO Act, union-backed legislation to promote labor organizing.— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) April 19, 2021
The PRO Act would block 'right-to-work' laws and impose tougher restrictions on companies seeking to prevent unionization efforts.https://t.co/rNWX4b86qj
Ah, Senator, one of your colleagues insists that legislation meet a filibuster-proof 60 vote requirement. Where are you going to find 10 Republicans who support unions? This is all for show, isn’t it?
Mine workers union willing to consider green jobs
United Mine Workers Association leadership announced that they support President Biden’s green energy policies in exchange for a robust transition strategy, a move by the union they hope their membership will support as a way to transition toward new jobs. https://t.co/svVoou6ECV— NBC News (@NBCNews) April 19, 2021
This also may be for show. Still, it is nice to see the UMWA say it out loud. (Refresh my memory -- didn't we once have a presidential candidate propose something like this a few years ago? How did that work out for her?)
Are the times a-changin’? I doubt it.
