Workers’ Bill of Rights

At the 2017 AFL-CIO Convention, the delegates passed a resolution calling for the creation of a Workers’ Bill of Rights. Speaking in support of the resolution, President Richard L. Trumka said:

Sisters and brothers, working people need a bill of rights.

A collective bargaining agreement for America.

This will serve as a platform for our members to rally around. It will give prospective members a clear statement of our values. And it will provide political candidates and elected officials with a litmus test for our support.

We simply refuse to accept the reality of struggling to make ends meet in the richest country in the world at its richest point in history. And so we demand rights that ensure we are able, through our work, to lead better lives.
