United Taxi Workers of San Diego (UTWSD) Affiliates with OPEIU

United Taxi Workers of San Diego (UTWSD) Affiliates with OPEIU
NEW YORK, NY (June 30, 2015) – The United Taxi Workers of San Diego (UTWSD) and Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU), AFL-CIO, jointly announced today an affiliation between UTWSD and OPEIU. The UTWSD is an association in a group of more than 1,500 taxi driver professionals in San Diego, California.

The executive boards of both organizations approved an affiliation agreement that will add to the more than 2,500 taxi drivers in Las Vegas, Nevada, that are represented by OPEIU, an organization of more than 105,000 members.

UTWSD and OPEIU are in the process of developing plans to increase the strength of taxi drivers in San Diego to become a model for taxi drivers throughout the United States.

“This affiliation strengthens OPEIU’s representation of taxi drivers, a group of workers who usually don’t have the advantages of union membership and who traditionally work for substandard wages and benefits,” said OPEIU International President Michael Goodwin. “Now the drivers in San Diego will have the strength of OPEIU and the 12 million members of the AFL-CIO behind them.”

UTWSD President Mikaiil Hussein said, “We are very excited about our affiliation with OPEIU and the AFL-CIO and we look forward to working together to accomplish great things for our members.”

UTWSD is a multi-ethnic membership-based organization formed in January 2010 immediately following the taxi drivers’ strike of December 2009. High lease prices, harassment by law enforcement and public transportation officials, and a generally languishing taxi industry necessitated better self representation and organization among drivers. Striking drivers appointed leadership and formed UTWSD. Since then UTWSD has led the charge in effectuating real change for taxi drivers in San Diego.

The Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU), AFL-CIO, represents more than 105,000 members in the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada. OPEIU represents employees and independent contractors in hospitals, medical clinics, banking and credit unions, insurance, higher education, shipping, utilities, transportation, hotels, administrative offices and more. 

Professional organizations and Guilds affiliated with OPEIU are a diverse group that includes podiatrists, nurses, appraisers and adjusters, clinical social workers, teachers, minor league umpires and helicopter pilots. For more information on OPEIU visit www.opeiu.org.

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.
