OPEIU’s TECH WORKERS UNION LOCAL 1010 STATEMENT ON THE TECH WORKERS’ BILL OF RIGHTS

OPEIU’s Tech Workers Union Local 1010 is pleased to today join a coalition of tech industry employees, unions and solidarity networks in presenting the Tech Workers' Bill of Rights, a set of principles to create an equitable future by raising the standards for all workers across the industry -- whether full-time office workers who deserve a say in the products they build, warehouse workers facing unsafe conditions or gig workers seeking security in tech’s competitive landscape.

A collaboration of the Tech Workers Coalition, the Tech Workers' Bill of Rights outlines protections all tech workers deserve and is based on the core values of equity, empowerment, representation, accountability, safety, autonomy, fairness and freedom. It covers a variety of issues specific to tech, including inclusive workplaces free from discrimination, freedom to speak one’s mind without retribution and protection from company surveillance. 

The last few years of organizing in tech have taught us many important lessons. Tech workers need protections at work, whether it’s to prevent retaliation toward activists or pay and benefits equity in the workplace. The issues tech workers care about are vast, and tech workers are ready to make their voices heard and raise standards across the industry.  

“At OPEIU, we’ve seen these trends take shape and have been fielding calls from workers wanting to organize, not just with the intention of forming a union, but to hold leadership accountable, to protect themselves and their co-workers and to advocate for changes across the industry,” OPEIU Lead Organizer Grace Reckers said. “We believe strengthening the labor movement in tech will require widespread endorsement of demands laid out in the Tech Workers' Bill of Rights so we can then collectively push for the basic rights all tech workers deserve.”

Tech Workers Union Local 1010 is here to help raise industry standards and provide all tech industry workers a better future in their workplaces through collective bargaining. The tech industry is incredibly vast, so securing these rights across the industry will require a diversity of tactics from a variety of players. With Tech Workers Union Local 1010, we are focused on how we can build strong unions and hardcode these protections in legally binding contracts. The Tech Workers' Bill of Rights will help guide those efforts.

The full text of the Tech Workers’ Bill of Rights can be found here: https://www.techworkersunion-1010.org/tech-workers-bill-of-rights

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.

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.
