Dear OPEIU Action Team Member:
On Friday night, the House of Representatives voted on a bill to provide relief to endangered multiemployer pensions, as part of President Bidens $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package.
The bill provides relief for plans in which many OPEIU members participate, including the OPEIU Western States Plan, the Local 153 Plan and a number of others, affecting OPEIU members and retirees throughout the United States. The bill goes to the Senate this week.
OPEIU members have been waiting for this type of legislation. We have been working with the AFL-CIO Retirement Committee for nearly two years to win this reform and secure our members' pensions.
For his entire career, OPEIU Representative Mike Davis has been fighting for the rights of health care professionals.
For the past two decades, he’s led the Pennsylvania Podiatric Medical Association, and played a major role in creating the First National Guild for Health Care Providers of the Lower Extremity/OPEIU Guild 45. Guild 45 is the first professional union dedicated to protecting the rights of the nation’s podiatrists.
Now he’s asking for help.
OPEIU members joined together with union members across the U.S. this past election cycle to call voters, write postcards and get out the vote to put into power a pro-worker Congress and a pro-worker White House.
Now, we need your help to turn our electoral victory into substantive change.
Call or write your member of Congress and tell them to level the playing field between workers and their employers by passing the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, a cornerstone of the AFL-CIO's Workers First Agenda.
