Thanks for Your Help in Protecting Our Pensions

Thanks for Your Help in Protecting Our Pensions

The Senate has passed a bill to provide relief to endangered multiemployer pensions, as part of President Bidens $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package. 

In addition to much needed relief to families and small businesses struggling during the pandemic, the bill provides relief for plans in which many OPEIU members participate, including the OPEIU Western States Plan, the Local 153 Plan and a number of others, affecting OPEIU members and retirees throughout the United States. The bill now goes back to the House for a final vote. 

OPEIU members have been waiting for this type of legislation. We have been working with the AFL-CIO Retirement Committee for nearly two years to win this reform and secure our members' pensions.

Pass the PRO Act

4 February 2021

Pass the PRO Act

OPEIU members joined together with union members across the U.S. this past election cycle to call voters, write postcards and get out the vote to put into power a pro-worker Congress and a pro-worker White House.

Now, we need your help to turn our electoral victory into substantive change.

Call or write your member of Congress and tell them to level the playing field between workers and their employers by passing the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, a cornerstone of the AFL-CIO's Workers First Agenda.

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.
