Turning 65? OPEIU's New Medicare Advantage Plan May be Right for You

30 September 2021

Turning 65? OPEIU's New Medicare Advantage Plan May be Right for You

Register for an informational webinar Oct. 6 at 3 pm EDT

If you’re at or nearing 65, OPEIU has an exciting new option to help save you money and provide dependable health care benefits during your retirement.

OPEIU is pleased to now offer our Medicare-eligible union retirees comprehensive Medicare Advantage plans through a trusted national partner, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. These plans are available exclusively to retired OPEIU members and their spouses/partners and cannot be found or bought on the open Medicare market.

These plans offer enhanced services compared to the Individual Medicare market, brand name prescription drug benefits and gap (“donut hole”) coverage, nationwide access and value-added programs (like SilverSneakers® gym membership, telehealth, hearing and more).

Voter Information and Registration

17 September 2021

Voter Information and Registration

On March 7, 2021, President Biden issued Executive Order 14019, Promoting Access to Voting.  Agencies subject to the order (including FMCS), are required to promote nonpartisan voter registration, engagement, and participation.

As part of this order, FMCS would like to direct employees, affiliates, stakeholders, other parties, and members of the public to voter information found on the website www.vote.gov and to ensure that your voter registration information is up to date.

Voter participation is important to a well-functioning democratic republic, as established by our Constitution. Our government – federal, state, and local – is elected by the citizens. Citizens vote for their government officials and these officials represent the concerns and ideas of the citizens in government. For example, your Governor is elected by the voters in your state. The Governor is in charge of the executive branch for your state. Voting is one important way that we can participate in our democracy. Besides voting for officials, we also vote on issues. Voters may want to make changes to their community, such as building bigger schools or adding new roads. Voting in an election is another critical way to participate in our democracy when we want to support or change a law.

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

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.
