AFL-CIO Launches PRO Act Ads in Arizona
The state has two undecided Senators who are needed to get the PRO Act passed
The AFL-CIO launched a major, bilingual ad campaign in Arizona this week, airing statewide television and radio ads promoting the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act. The advertising campaign is aligned with a national week of action, from April 26 to May 1, mobilizing working people to demand Senate passage of the landmark worker rights bill.
“We’re taking nothing for granted,” said AFL-CIO spokesperson Evangelina Hernandez. “The PRO Act is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to give working people a stronger voice on the job. We’re making sure the Senate hears us loud and clear by reminding Arizonans of what they already know: It shouldn’t be this hard just to get by.”
The radio ads feature English- and Spanish-language personal testimonials from Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT) member Juan Padilla. The TV ads can be viewed below.
Similar ads are also running in West Virginia, Alaska, and Virginia.
UCOMM PAC has been also been running ads in Arizona for the past month with messages from IBEW members pressuring Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema to support the PRO Act. You can help keep those ads on the air by donating to UCOMM PAC.
