Our last PRO Act action of the week

30 April 2021

Our last PRO Act action of the week

Thank you to everyone who participated in our PRO Act National Week of Action. We have one last action this week: Call your senators. Working people elected them because they gave us their word that passing the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act was a priority. It’s time for them to keep their promise.

Together, we’ve made thousands of calls and wrote thousands of letters. We told lawmakers loud and clear: Support working people. It’s working.

The House passed the PRO Act with bipartisan support.

Today is Workers Memorial Day

28 April 2021

Today is Workers Memorial Day

On Workers Memorial Day, we remember those who have suffered and died on the job.

We have lost and continue to lose too many working people to COVID-19 and other workplace hazards. No one should die simply because we go to work.  

Under the law, every employer is responsible for providing a safe workplace. But each year, thousands of people are killed and millions more get sick or are injured from preventable workplace hazards.  

American Rescue Plan Act Provides Six Months of COBRA Payments

21 April 2021

American Rescue Plan Act Provides Six Months of COBRA Payments

The American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) provides up to six months of COBRA payments from April 1, 2021, through Sept. 30, 2021, for those who lost or will lose their employment-provided medical coverage between Nov. 1, 2019, and Sept. 30, 2021. This provision of the ARP can assist members who may have lost or may lose their jobs, even temporarily, and correspondingly lose their medical coverage. The following information may be of interest to your members.

To receive this benefit, you must meet the federal government’s eligibility criteria and must apply for the subsidized COBRA. You must enroll within 60 days from when you receive your updated COBRA notice or April 1, 2021, whichever is later.

Chauvin Verdict a First Step Toward Racial Justice and Equality

20 April 2021

Chauvin Verdict a First Step Toward Racial Justice and Equality

Statement by the Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU), AFL-CIO

Today, justice was partially served with the conviction of George Floyd's uniformed killer and is a first step toward racial justice and equality in this country. OPEIU expresses condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Floyd, whose life was stolen from him by a police officer enabled by an unjust set of systems and institutions that will continue to claim the lives of our neighbors and loved ones -- until we put a stop to it.

The labor movement is a valuable ally in the multifaceted fight against racism in all of its forms, both in the workplace and in our communities. It's incumbent upon the trade union movement to agitate, educate and organize to eradicate the systems and structures that left George Floyd -- and countless others -- dead at the hands of those whose duty is to serve and protect. Another Black life claimed by police brutality is one too many.

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.
