In a scripted virtual town hall between AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka and presidential candidate Joe Biden, Biden made a host of promises to labor unions if he were to get elected. Those promises include signing the Butch Lewis Act, which provides bailouts for failing union pensions, and passing what is known as the “PRO Act,” which includes banning state Right-to-Work laws, eliminating secret-ballot elections on unionization, and making California’s “ABC” test a federal law.

“Right-to-Work” laws, currently active in 27 states, prevent unions from requiring workers who are covered under a collective bargaining agreement to either pay a union or be fired from their jobs.
