* Co-sponsored the Employee Free Choice Act, which establishes fairness in the workplace by providing America's workers with a free choice to bargain for better wages, benefits and working conditions.

* Supported the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which rectifies the Supreme Court decision of Ledbetter v. Goodyear that made it much more difficult for workers to pursue pay discrimination claims. Ledbetter v. Goodyear granted employers protection from lawsuits over race or gender pay discrimination if the claims are based on decisions made by the employer 180 days ago or more.

* Co-sponsored the TRADE Act, which requires a review of key existing trade pacts, including NAFTA, the WTO and CAFTA and sets forth what must not be included in future trade pacts. It also provides for the renegotiation of existing trade agreements. The legislation describes key elements of a new trade negotiation and approval mechanism to replace Fast Track, which would enhance Congress' role in the formative aspects of agreements and promote future deals that could enjoy broad support among the American public.
