Biden’s Victory Means Workers Once Again Have a Seat at the Table

Biden’s Victory Means Workers Once Again Have a Seat at the Table

Joe Biden’s election victory is a victory for working families throughout this country, bringing with it a renewed sense of optimism that they will once again have their voices heard in the Oval Office. As we celebrate this victory today, we know there is much work to be done and look forward to working with the Biden administration to reestablish and further the interests of all working Americans.

Earlier this year, a survey of OPEIU members -- the first-ever of its kind in our union’s history -- showed a strong majority in support of making Biden the forty-sixth president of the United States. OPEIU members throughout the country worked tirelessly in the months leading up to the election to help get out the vote for Biden and his vice-presidential running mate, Kamala Harris.


With Election Results Unknown, All Votes Must be Counted

With Election Results Unknown, All Votes Must be Counted

New York, N.Y. (Nov. 4, 2020) – As we collectively move into a period of electoral uncertainty, OPEIU reaffirms its commitment to mobilizing its members to safeguard our democratic institutions from anti-worker attacks by President Trump and his allies.

For more than a year, Trump has been setting the stage to contest the outcome of the election. His team will do all they can in the courts and on the ground to throw out votes, attack ballot counters and intimidate those who wish to see the election decided by the voters -- not by the president.

Our union will join the effort to monitor the situation in key states, particularly those with governors with a demonstrated track record of voter suppression and strong-arming, and do all we can to ensure all votes are counted and that those votes determine the winner.

From Process to Policy, OPEIU Opposes New SCOTUS Appointment

28 September 2020

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.

OPEIU Mourns the Loss of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

OPEIU Mourns the Loss of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

OPEIU mourns the loss of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. For decades, Justice Ginsburg played a pivotal role in expanding the rights of working people, women and all those without a voice in the nation she recognized as tipped in favor of the already wealthy and powerful. Her lifetime of work will continue to serve as inspiration for us all, especially young women and men who rightly considered her a role model and inspiration.

The stakes are too high to force through the nomination of a new justice just six weeks before the general election. We owe it to Justice Ginsburg to respect her last wishes and refuse to allow her seat to be filled until the American people vote on Nov. 3. OPEIU recognizes what's at stake this election, and pledges to devote all its energies in the fight for justice and equality.

Join Today's Vigil to Honor Birmingham Church Bombing Victims

 

Today, Sept. 15, marks the 57th anniversary of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham, Alabama. The AFL-CIO plans to honor the legacy of the four young girls who perished that day – Addie Mae Collins, Cynthia Wesley, Carole Robertson, and Carol Denise McNair – with a virtual candlelight vigil today at noon. The AFL-CIO is also calling on members to sign a ten-point pledge for social, racial and economic justice

No evil is extinguished unless good people act. OPEIU calls on all those who believe racial and economic justice are intimately intertwined to take action today to stand up against white supremacy.

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.
