OPEIU Considering White Collar Name Change

Would a Rose by Any Other Name Smell as Sweet? You Tell Us!

OPEIU Considering White Collar Name Change

When OPEIU was chartered in 1945, its official membership publication was known as Office Worker. In 1954, the name was changed to White Collar.

Well, it’s now 65 years later and OPEIU is considering if it is time to change our magazine’s name once again to better reflect the times we’re living in today.

And we want to know what you think.

Help us make the decision by coming up with a great new name for White Collar. Email your suggestions to frontdesk@opeiu.org with the subject line White Collar Name Change. OPEIU’s executive board will review the suggestions and decide if one of them is right for the publication. If so, the official name change will be announced in an upcoming issue of the magazine, and the author of the winning suggestion will receive $500 as thanks. All suggestions must be received by Aug. 1.
