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.
Joe Biden is the only serious presidential candidate who will devote time and effort to combating what he accurately calls "the war on organizing." Read his comprehensive plan for labor law reform here: https://joebiden.com/empowerworkers/

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.
