We are now one year into the most pro-union presidential administration in modern history. We knew it wouldn't be easy, and we still have a long way to go. But there have already been concrete wins for working people in spite of relentless obstruction and anti-worker animus among many members of Congress.
We now have a pro-worker majority at the National Labor Relations Board.
We have a union sibling, Secretary Marty Walsh, at the helm of the Department of Labor. And with the American Rescue Plan, $1.9 trillion has been released to states and localities to spend on COVID mitigation, infrastructure and more.
Though we still have a long way to go to enact the rest of our legislative priorities -- passing pro-worker legislation like the PRO Act, the outright cancellation of student debt, strengthening of voting rights and implementation of Build Back Better -- we have much to be proud of.
