MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - A rally was held Monday night in support of Michigan’s U.S. Senators who back the Protecting our Right to Organize or PRO Act.

Senators Gary Peters and Debbie Stabenow both support the PRO Act which has already passed the House.

Monday night supporters met near Senator Peters’ office off Washington Street in Marquette. The rally was to show support for the act and thank the Senators for their efforts.

“I’d like to thank Senator Stabenow and Senator Peters for their continued support on labor issues, they’ve always been strong supporters for us and keep up the good work and talk to the other senators and convince them that we need to pass this act,” said Michael Thibault, Chair of the Upper Peninsula Regional Labor Federation.

The U.S. Senate Committee on Health Education Labor & Pensions, otherwise known as the HELP Committee, is set to hold a hearing on the PRO act this Thursday July 22.
