The Metal Trades Department, AFL-CIO, joins with its allied national labor unions to endorse the bipartisan pro-union Tax Fairness for Workers Act (H.R. 2549 / S. 1157).

The AFL-CIO and 51 national unions issued the accompanying letter urging Congress to prioritize reinstating a federal tax deduction for workers’ union dues and enact it in 2022, stating the deduction “would deliver direct cash tax benefits to millions of middle-class Americans, help increase union membership, and strengthen labor unions’ capacity to negotiate for increased wages, better benefits and safer healthier workplaces.”
