Murray, Shuler join SWWACLC podcast to discuss PRO Act

VANCOUVER, Wash. (May 3, 2021) — If you haven’t yet heard the Southwest Washington Central Labor Council’s podcast “Working to Live in Southwest Washington,” you need to check out their May Day edition featuring U.S. Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) and AFL-CIO Secretary Treasurer Liz Shuler discussing the need to pass the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act.

The podcast, which features SWWACLC President Shannon Myers and Harold Phillips as co-hosts, welcomes Murray who explains why she is lead sponsor of the sweeping labor law reform bill and why she’s fighting so hard to get it passed. Then Shuler, a Pacific Northwesterner herself, takes a deep dive into the bill and what it will do for working people — whether they’re in a union or not — and explains how the PRO Act is more than just labor law reform, it’s also a civil rights and human rights bill.
