NAW Statement on PRO Act

February 5, 2021

Washington, DC – The National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW) issued the following statement after the reintroduction of the PRO Act:

From Seth Waugh, Associate Vice President for Government Relations:

“The PRO Act is radical legislation that would impose union-friendly policies that were rejected by the judicial system, opposed on a bipartisan basis in Congress, and abandoned by the agencies asked to enforce them. Instead of focusing on keeping businesses open and workers employed during this pandemic, Congress is now considering legislation that would be a blatant handout to organized labor by attempting to increase the number of dues-paying union members at the expense of workers, small and local businesses, and entrepreneurs. Unions continue to push this legislation to tip the playing field in their favor and if passed, the idea of fair elections and due process rights for workers and employers alike would be systematically dismantled.”
