2020 Recent Vote
Representative Robert Scott (D-VA) sponsored H.R.2474, the Protecting the Right to Organize Act of 2019. This bill would empower employees by strengthening worker’ rights to collectively bargain and organize. Protecting workers’ rights to organize is critical as we transition to a clean energy economy -- the jobs that are created to tackle the climate crisis must be good, family-sustaining jobs. Additionally, strengthening the unions that protect workers helps to address income inequality and wage stagnation. On February 6, the House approved H.R. 2474 by a vote of 224-194 (House roll call vote 50). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE. The Senate took no action on this legislation.
