AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on Supreme Court Decision to Hear the DAPA and Expanded DACA Case

Supreme Court Should Approve Policies that Will Provide Much-needed Relief to Immigrant Working Families

We applaud the Supreme Court's decision to take up this case, which will have profound consequences for our immigrant brothers and sisters who live and work every day under a cloud of fear, as well as for racial and economic justice in our country.  We are confident that the Court will reverse the Fifth Circuit and allow the DAPA and expanded DACA policies to go into effect, affording millions of people the opportunity to apply for work authorization and temporary protection from deportation. We encourage the Department of Homeland Security to take all steps necessary to ensure these much-needed policies can be implemented as soon as possible after the Court issues its decision this summer.

At the heart, of the question the Supreme Court will consider is whether our immigration enforcement regime will take modest steps to protect and empower hard-working people, or whether it will continue to serve as a tool to exclude and oppress.

Much is at stake in this case, but working people do not need the ruling of a court to interpret what is just.  In the face of criminalization, exploitation, and base attempts to sow division, we will continue to work in every community in the country to build what we believe is the only true antidote:  solidarity.

El Tribunal Supremo debería aprobar las tan necesitadas políticas de alivio migratorio para las familias trabajadoras inmigrantes

Richard Trumka, presidente de la AFL-CIO, sobre la decisión del Tribunal Supremo de escuchar el caso de DAPA y la expansión de DACA

 

Aplaudimos la decisión del Tribunal Supremo de tomar este caso, el cual tendrá consecuencias profundas para nuestras hermanas y hermanos inmigrantes que viven y trabajan diariamente con temor, como también para la justicia racial y económica en este país. Confiamos que este Tribunal revoque al Quinto Circuito y que permita que DAPA y la expansión de DAPA puedan implementarse, brindándole a millones de personas la oportunidad de solicitar un permiso de trabajo como también protección temporal de deportación. Alentamos al Departamento de Seguridad Nacional (DHS) para que tome todas las medidas necesarias y así asegurar que estas políticas públicas, que tanto se necesitan, puedan ser implementadas en cuanto el Tribunal anuncie su decisión este verano.

La principal pregunta que el Tribunal Supremo tendrá que considerar es si nuestro régimen de hacer cumplir las leyes de inmigración tomará pequeños pasos para proteger y darle poder a la gente trabajadora, o si continuará sirviendo como una herramienta de exclusión y opresión.

 

Este caso pone mucho en juego, pero las personas trabajadoras no necesitan el veredicto de un tribunal para interpretar lo que es justo. Al frente de la criminalización, la explotación, y los intentos simples para dividirnos, continuaremos trabajando en cada comunidad del país para construir lo que creemos que es el único antídoto verdadero: la solidaridad.

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.
