New York, NY, November 26, 2012:  The Association of Minor League Umpires (AMLU)/OPEIU Guild 322, the labor union that represents all professional Minor League Baseball umpires in the United States and Canada, announces that current President Shaun Francis will begin a third consecutive term as head of the union.  Francis was unopposed in his run for a record third term.  Sam Vogt was also unopposed in his run to join the executive board as First Vice President, replacing retiring First VP Justin Vogel.  Tim Hromada joins the leadership of AMLU as Secretary-Treasurer, finishing the final two years of a vacancy in that post.
Second Vice President Mario Seneca has two years remaining on his term, and Recording Secretary Tom Clarke has one year remaining on his term in office.

“I am very excited about the great mix of leaders we have on this board,” said Francis. “We have people like myself who have been around a little while, and Sam and Tim are stepping up to mark a new generation of umpires that are getting active and taking a role in their union.”

The newly elected officers terms begin on January 1, 2013.  AMLU recently concluded successful negotiations to renew their contract with Minor League Baseball last winter.  The five-year contract runs through 2016.

“This is a great time for Sam and Tim to join the leadership of the union and get vital experience over the coming months and years before we need to begin the process of negotiating a new deal with Baseball,” Francis said.

Shaun Francis was first elected President of AMLU in 2007, and last year finished his ninth year in Minor League Baseball as a crew chief in the Triple-A Pacific Coast League.  AMLU is an affiliate of Office and Professional Employees International Union, an AFL-CIO member union.

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.
