Register for OPEIU's Lunchtime Webinar: Estate Planning Assistance

Most of us know we need important estate planning documents like wills, advance directives and powers of attorney, but 70 percent of Americans do not have a will.

Finding the time to complete these documents can be a challenge.

Join OPEIU on Tuesday, Sept. 21 at 12 p.m. EDT or 3 p.m. EDT for a 45-minute webinar to learn more about your options to complete your important estate planning documents in as little as 15 minutes.

As a member of OPEIU, you have access to the Union Plus Legal Program offered through MetLife Legal Plans, which provides coverage to OPEIU members for a list of personal legal issues, including money matters, home and real estate needs, estate planning, elder-care issues and many more at an affordable price.

The digital estate planning solution makes it easy for you to complete the documents you need to designate your wishes for health care, as well as protect your family and assets quickly and easily from the comfort of your home. With the digital estate planning solution, you can create:

  • Last Will and Testament – leave property to loved ones and choose guardians for minor children.
  • Advance Directive – plan for a medical emergency and select medical care preferences.
  • Durable Financial Power of Attorney – choose someone to manage finances in case of an emergency.

Carla Puleo of MetLife and Anthony Russo of MetLife Legal Plans will lead a discussion about how OPEIU’s members can access their will preparation and estate planning benefits, either by visiting one of MetLife Legal Plan’s 18,000 network attorneys or by choosing to complete these important documents online, in just 15 minutes.

Union Coalition Files Unfair Practice Charge Against the State of New Jersey Judiciary Over COVID Policy (August 24. 2021)

Late last week, JCAU Council and CWA 1036 jointly filed an Unfair Labor Practice Charge as well as a petition for immediate restraints with the Public Employment Relations Commission to challenge the Judiciary’s recently announced vaccine and testing policy. While the immediate restraints were denied, the underlying ULP is moving forward.  The ULP is based on the near-immediate imposition of the policy without impact negotiations with the Unions. The Unfair Practice process is underway and procedural steps are scheduled over the next 2-3 weeks. We will keep members updated on any developments.

Local 32 urges support for S.420: the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act

We urge our members to contact their US Senators in support of the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, important pro-worker, pro-union legislation which has already passed the House of Representatives (H.R. 842), but needs to get through the Senate (S.420). You can call your Senators toll free at 866-832-1560 and tell them this bill is important to you.

Key Legislation Messaging and Local Union Communication Survey



To All OPEIU Local Unions:

It's a very busy time in Washington with several key pieces of legislation pending that will significantly impact working families, including the PRO Act and the For the People Act of 2021 (voting rights).

To ensure consistent messaging and combat anti-worker efforts, OPEIU has put together messaging points on both pieces of legislation, along with some graphics that all local unions are encouraged to use in any publications, websites, social media postings or other communication methods. They are included below, and graphics are attached. We've also included an AFL-CIO statement, “Senate Rules Cannot be Used to Block a Workers First Agenda," which we hope you’ll find helpful. The Executive Council’s full statement is available here.
