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.
