The Hawai'i Nurses' Association (HNA) announced its affiliation with the Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU), AFL-CIO today. "Our affiliation with OPEIU is a landmark decision for us and signals our intention to take our place in organized labor," said HNA President Joan Craft, RN.
OPEIU members can contribute to the Haitian relief effort through Union Plus. Union Plus will match individual donations made to the AFL-CIO Solidarity Center’s Earthquake Relief for Haitian Workers fund dollar-for-dollar, up to $100,000 total. This means a $10 donation becomes $20, $25 becomes $50 and so on.
The OPEIU Executive Board has named Allen Byron to serve as Vice President for Region II on the Executive Board. Byron is Secretary-Treasurer/Business Manager of OPEIU Local 32 in Union, New Jersey. “Allen has been a dedicated union leader for many years, and his life’s mission has been to better the lives of working families in New Jersey,” said OPEIU President Michael Goodwin. “His experience working at Local 32, defending members and negotiating higher pay and benefits, makes him the perfect person to represent the members of Region II.”
OPEIU, SEIU and IBEW members gather outside Fortalaza, the governors's office in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico to protest the layoff of 17,000 government employees.
