Employees at Nava PBC Secure Employer Recognition of Union with OPEIU Tech Workers Union Local 1010

Today, Nava United and Nava Public Benefit Corporation are proud to announce that we will be moving forward together through a voluntary recognition process. In the coming weeks, we look forward to entering into negotiations to reach a voluntary recognition agreement. We believe that this process will allow us to act on our shared values of being active stewards, thinking long term, building together, inclusion is essential, and progress takes work. Through collaboration, we believe that we can continue to strengthen the work we are so proud to do at Nava.

Shaun Mosley, a worker from Nava United, said, “After being at Nava for nearly two years, I know a union will push the organization to be even more equitable, inclusive, open and transparent. I’m excited to exemplify why unions make workplaces better.” “The history of union negotiating processes suggests that it can be inherently adversarial, but I don’t believe it has to be approached that way", said Rohan Bhobe, CEO and co-founder of Nava PBC. "One of Nava's values is progress takes work, and as we go through this process together, deliberately and thoughtfully, we will continue to maintain a shared commitment to building a more effective organization for our staff, clients, and the people we serve, and to respecting one another as colleagues who are doing something hard together—making government services simple, effective, and accessible to all.”

Together, we are excited to begin negotiating terms toward voluntary recognition. Through this process, we are inviting and sustaining worker input into solving some of the biggest challenges facing our government today.

Attention Nonprofit Employees: Public Service Loan Forgiveness Deadline is Oct. 31

The Oct. 31 deadline is fast approaching for public sector employees to apply for student loan relief through the U.S. Department of Education's Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Program.

Many OPEIU members work for "public service employers," which includes many nonprofits, and are thus eligible to take advantage of temporary changes that make it easier to qualify for loan forgiveness under the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program.

Take Advantage of Public Service Loan Forgiveness Changes Before Oct. 31

Many OPEIU members work for "public service employers," which includes many nonprofits, and are thus eligible to take advantage of temporary changes that make it easier to qualify for loan forgiveness under the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program. 

More specifically, under the temporary waiver:

  • Borrowers who have Federal Family Education Loans (FFEL), Perkins loans or other federal student loans can consolidate their loans into a Direct Consolidation Loan and receive PSLF credit for periods of repayment prior to consolidation. Periods of repayment on parent PLUS loans are not eligible under the limited PSLF waiver. Before consolidating, borrowers should check to see if they work for a qualifying employer using the PSLF Help Tool.
  • Past periods of repayment will now count regardless of whether a borrower made a payment, or made that payment on time, for the full amount due, or on a qualifying repayment plan.

Be sure to check your eligibility for the PSLF waiver before the changes expire on Oct. 31, 2022.

Unfortunately, union staff are not eligible for this program. Be sure to visit the OPEIU Membership Benefits page to learn about the OPEIU Student Debt Reduction Program and the educational scholarships available for OPEIU members and their families.

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.
