ALPA Urges Congress to Protect Workers’ Rights and Pass the PRO Act
McLean, VA — Air Line Pilots Association, Int’l (ALPA) president, Capt. Jason Ambrosi issued the following statement on the introduction of the Richard L. Trumka Protecting the Right to Organize Act (PRO Act):
“The right to organize has been fundamental in advancing safety and quality of life improvements for workers across the country. ALPA pilots know first-hand the benefits of union membership and advocacy, and we stand in solidarity with those fighting for the right to collectively bargain.
“We urge Congress to pass the PRO Act which will help promote an economy that works for all working families. All workers deserve fair opportunities to negotiate for better working conditions, wages, and a more secure retirement. The collective bargaining rights within the PRO Act are foundational for strong and vibrant communities and are vital for our nation’s continued success.”
Founded in 1931, ALPA is the largest airline pilot union in the world and represents more than 67,000 pilots at 39 U.S. and Canadian airlines. Visit ALPA.org or follow us on Twitter @ALPAPilots.
