Honoring Black History

As we celebrate Black History Month and honor the central role Black Americans have played in U.S. history, we're reminded in so many ways how the fight for racial justice is an ongoing one.

The fight for racial equality takes place – now, as it always has – in our communities, legislatures, workplaces and even inside our union halls. Throughout the month of February, we'll be honoring OPEIU members who continue this fight at work and in their communities, helping to organize their co-workers, standing with striking workers across the country, joining the fight for voting rights, and volunteering to help those in need in their neighborhoods.

We honor them and the accomplishments and struggles of all Black Americans, yesterday, today and tomorrow.

In solidarity,

Team OPEIU

Follow us on social media to read their inspiring stories and join us as we celebrate OPEIU members who are working toward racial justice and equality each and every day.

OPEIU Statement on President Biden's First Year in Office

We are now one year into the most pro-union presidential administration in modern history. We knew it wouldn't be easy, and we still have a long way to go. But there have already been concrete wins for working people in spite of relentless obstruction and anti-worker animus among many members of Congress.

We now have a pro-worker majority at the National Labor Relations Board. 

We have a union sibling, Secretary Marty Walsh, at the helm of the Department of Labor. And with the American Rescue Plan, $1.9 trillion has been released to states and localities to spend on COVID mitigation, infrastructure and more.

Though we still have a long way to go to enact the rest of our legislative priorities -- passing pro-worker legislation like the PRO Act, the outright cancellation of student debt, strengthening of voting rights and implementation of Build Back Better -- we have much to be proud of.
