From Process to Policy, OPEIU Opposes New SCOTUS Appointment

The Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU), AFL-CIO, opposes and is mobilizing against President Trump's decision to nominate a new Supreme Court justice just five weeks before a presidential election. The process of nominating a new justice at this time is unsupported by a majority of Americans, and threatens to uproot civil rights and liberties most Americans consider foundational.

Beyond the process-oriented issues with nominating a new justice before the American people cast their ballots on Nov. 3, Judge Amy Coney Barrett's anti-worker record will further jeopardize the already unstable future of working families across the U.S.

"Judge Barrett has proven she is not a friend of working people, and her appointment to the court would immediately threaten the future of the Affordable Care Act, on which millions of Americans depend," said OPEIU President Richard Lanigan. "We owe it to those who came before and to those who will come after us to oppose this nomination."

Her successful appointment to the court will tilt its makeup even further in favor of corporate interests and against working people, and will uproot hard-fought progress made on healthcare, workers' and women's rights, and could prove the death knell in the fight against corporate exploitation, climate change and restriction of reproductive rights. In the interest of a Supreme Court that supports all working Americans, OPEIU adamantly opposes Judge Barrett's nomination to the Supreme Court and reaffirms its call to the Senate to not allow a confirmation vote before the American people cast their ballots on Nov. 3.

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.
