APPLETON - State Representative and Congressional candidate Amanda Stuck expressed disappointment in incumbent Congressman Mike Gallagher’s recent no vote on the Protecting the Right to Organize Act (PRO Act, HR 2474).

Stuck, who is challenging Gallagher in the Eighth Congressional District, has been an advocate for unions throughout her career.

amanda-stuck“We need to give our workers the tools and the agency they need to make a better life for themselves and their families,” Stuck said. “One of my greatest honors as a legislator is being able to support these working families in their fight.”

Stuck has been endorsed by numerous unions including:

  • NorthEast Wisconsin Building & Construction Trades Council
  • Appleton FireFighters Local 257
  • International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers (SMART)
  • International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace, and Agricultural Implement Workers of America Region 4 (UAW)
  • Painter & Allied Trades District Council No. 7 (IUPAT)
  • American Postal Workers Union

“The Protecting the Right to Organize Act (PRO Act, HR 2474) would be one of the first significant upgrades to union rights in decades,” Stuck continued. “While I am thrilled that we are finally seeing some progress in the fight to empower our workers I am disappointed that my opponent was one of the few legislators to vote against the PRO Act.

“Our job as legislators is to focus on what we can do to help our constituents. The working families of Northeast Wisconsin deserve better, they deserve a voice in Washington that will fight for them.”
