Tell Your Senators to Protect Our Pension Plans

Tell Your Senators to Protect Our Pension Plans

Dear OPEIU Action Team Member:

On Friday night, the House of Representatives voted on a bill to provide relief to endangered multiemployer pensions, as part of President Bidens $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package.

The bill provides relief for plans in which many OPEIU members participate, including the OPEIU Western States Plan, the Local 153 Plan and a number of others, affecting OPEIU members and retirees throughout the United States. The bill goes to the Senate this week.

OPEIU members have been waiting for this type of legislation. We have been working with the AFL-CIO Retirement Committee for nearly two years to win this reform and secure our members' pensions.

Pass the PRO Act

4 February 2021

Pass the PRO Act

OPEIU members joined together with union members across the U.S. this past election cycle to call voters, write postcards and get out the vote to put into power a pro-worker Congress and a pro-worker White House.

Now, we need your help to turn our electoral victory into substantive change.

Call or write your member of Congress and tell them to level the playing field between workers and their employers by passing the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, a cornerstone of the AFL-CIO's Workers First Agenda.

Tell Congress and President Biden: Put workers first!



We cannot let this moment pass without big change.

The AFL-CIO has a Workers First Agenda for Congress and President Joe Biden. We are ready to work together to pass laws that put working people first. Will you add your name and join us? We need laws that protect our rights to organize and join a union.

We need laws that set workplace safety standards to keep us safe during this global pandemic and beyond. We need laws that advance racial and economic justice in every facet of our society. We need laws that create jobs with a living wage and good benefits—where workers are treated with dignity and can hold our heads high, knowing we are paid fairly for our work and can provide for ourselves and the people we love.

Celebrating Black History Month: OPEIU Remembers a Civil Rights Pioneer

Local 100 Member Reflects on Mother’s Groundbreaking Legacy

Modern histories of the civil rights movements of the 1950s and ‘60s frequently place figures like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks front-and-center, while neglecting the hundreds of thousands of everyday people who turned the fight for civil rights into full-blown movements for civil rights.

By resisting, protesting and boycotting vestiges of white supremacy, black Americans across the nation slowly uprooted many of the discriminatory structures that prevented, and continue to prevent, black Americans from realizing the relative prosperity enjoyed by their white counterparts. Despite playing an integral role, most of the activists who made up the movement remain historically anonymous, deemed too obscure, insignificant or irrelevant to warrant their own histories.

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.
