Take Action

Congress recently passed the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill. Now, we need Congress to take bold action and pass the Build Back Better Act, a $1.75 trillion investment in child care, home care, clean energy jobs, health care, tax fairness, immigration improvements and support for worker organizing. Working people in America have waited long enough. Add your name to show you support this historic investment in working people.

After two years of bargaining, The New York Times Company has continued to delay negotiations with the Wirecutter Union through unfair labor practices and wage offers that significantly underpay staff. They know that their readers rely on their work during this time to guide their holiday shopping. They are asking for subscribers and supporters to sign the pledge:

Workers at Hello Fresh are organizing a union to make their jobs safer and more sustainable at the largest meal kit company in the United States. While Hello Fresh profited from the pandemic, employees faced disrespect, a COVID-19 outbreak, and preventable injuries. Workers are calling on the company to make sure sustainable jobs are part of the package and that the company pledge to not harass or intimidate workers organizing a union. Your voice matters. Join them.

All auto companies are moving toward lower emissions, and the market share of electric vehicles will grow. To make the shift to EVs work for our communities, we need policies that promote U.S. manufacturing and good union jobs. Right now, there is a provision in the Build Back Better Act that does just that by giving consumers an additional tax credit if they purchase a union-made electric vehicle made in the U.S. That’s right – union-made. 

Congress is facing a once in a generation opportunity to invest in American workers by passing a bipartisan infrastructure package. Passing the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act means Ohio will get $10 Billion to repair and rebuild our crumbling roads and bridges, over $1 Billion in transportation spending that will improve healthy, sustainable transportation options for tens of thousands of Ohioans. In addition to traditional infrastructure spending, Ohio will also receive $250 million to help deliver high-speed internet to all corners of the state and start building out our Electric Vehicle charging station infrastructure.

Few households in America aren’t struggling with a caregiver crisis during the pandemic. The burden is falling disproportionately on the shoulders of women—and without paid family leave, it has been devastating.
