STATEMENT OF THE OFFICE AND PROFESSIONAL EMPLOYEES INTERNATIONAL UNION (OPEIU), AFL-CIO, ON THE SECOND IMPEACHMENT OF DONALD J. TRUMP

14 January 2021

STATEMENT OF THE OFFICE AND PROFESSIONAL EMPLOYEES INTERNATIONAL UNION (OPEIU), AFL-CIO, ON THE SECOND IMPEACHMENT OF DONALD J. TRUMP

Today's impeachment of Donald Trump crossed party lines, but 197 representatives still neglected to hold the president accountable for his fraudulent attempts to undermine millions of American voters by inciting a violent insurrection. The swift action taken by Speaker Pelosi to bring charges of impeachment to a floor vote, just one week after the president's supporters stormed the Capitol, should be met in kind by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. If ever there was a time for Senate Republicans to stop enabling this reckless president, it is now. Remove. Investigate. Prosecute. #RemoveNow #DoYourDuty #ConveneAndConvict

A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM AFL-CIO PRESIDENT RICHARD TRUMKA ABOUT DEMOCRACY AND THE LABOR MOVEMENT

12 January 2021

A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM AFL-CIO PRESIDENT RICHARD TRUMKA ABOUT DEMOCRACY AND THE LABOR MOVEMENT

On Wednesday, the U.S. Congress gathered, with Vice President Mike Pence presiding. The Constitution of the United States says that on Jan. 6, after a presidential election, Congress shall meet to count the electoral votes cast for the president and vice president of the United States. It is a solemn ritual of democracy — conducted in the grand halls of our Capitol, with the ballots in hand-tooled leather boxes. But it is only that — a ritual.

This ceremonial custom is not how our president and vice president are chosen. They are chosen by the people — voting state by state on the first Tuesday in November. And that custom, and the people who conduct it, good people though they may be, are not our democratic republic, and they are not our country.  

STATEMENT OF THE OFFICE AND PROFESSIONAL EMPLOYEES INTERNATIONAL UNION ON CONGRESSIONAL CERTIFICATION OF PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION AND CONDEMNATION OF VIOLENCE AT THE U.S. CAPITOL

7 January 2021

STATEMENT OF THE OFFICE AND PROFESSIONAL EMPLOYEES INTERNATIONAL UNION ON CONGRESSIONAL CERTIFICATION OF PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION AND CONDEMNATION OF VIOLENCE AT THE U.S. CAPITOL

Yesterday was one of the darkest, most shameful days in our nation's history. Incited by the rhetoric of Donald Trump, domestic terrorists stormed the U.S. Capitol and threatened the lives of our nation's lawmakers, their staffs and the men and women who serve what President Elect Biden called "the citadel of liberty." This insurrection was directly incited by President Trump and his allies and they must be held accountable. This president has violated his oath to the nation to defend and protect our constitution. He must immediately be removed from office.

This week’s announcement of the formation of the Alphabet Workers Union (AWU) was met across the tech industry, and among those organizing within it, with optimism and hope that the effort will lead to more tech workers realizing their collective power at work.

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.

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.
