  • 28 July 2023

As the 2024 presidential campaign heats up, OPEIU wants to know what you think.

We’ve set up an online poll so you can weigh in. Do you think OPEIU should endorse a presidential candidate, and if so, who should we endorse? Which candidate do you feel has the needs and concerns of working families at the top of their agenda?

Just click on the link to visit the poll to cast your vote.

Why is this important? As a democratic union, OPEIU wants this to be an open, member-driven endorsement process. We want to make sure EVERY member has the opportunity to participate, so the poll will remain open until August 28. You can help get the word out by sharing the poll with other OPEIU members after you take it.

Make sure your voice is heard. Cast your vote today.

In solidarity,

Announcing OPEIU’s New Discount College Benefit

  • 24 July 2023

Dear OPEIU Members and Family:

Here is an update on recent developments regarding the OPEIU Free College Benefit, as well as introduction to an exciting opportunity for our union members and their families.

We understand there has been uncertainty surrounding the Free College Benefit for continuing students and are sad to say, due to a decision by the Department of Education, the benefit is no longer available to you and your family. While this may be disappointing news, we believe change often brings new and exciting opportunities.

Our new union college benefit option offers up to 50 percent discounted tuition rates and still applies to your federal grant awards to reduce your out-of-pocket costs even further.

OPEIU’s Discount College Benefit offers flexibility and numerous options for union members and their families to further their education. The program’s extensive network of colleges and universities is comprised of accredited institutions committed to providing discounted tuition rates to our union members and their families, ensuring accessibility and affordability for higher education. Whether you are interested in pursuing an associate, bachelor’s or master’s degree, or are seeking to enhance your professional skills with undergraduate or graduate certificates, the program has a comprehensive range of more than 50 online degree programs and certificate offerings.

Tens of Thousands of Healthcare Workers at Kaiser Permanente to Picket at 50 Facilities Over Unsafe Staffing, Patient Care Crisis

Tens of Thousands of Healthcare Workers at Kaiser Permanente to Picket at 50 Facilities Over Unsafe Staffing, Patient Care Crisis

OAKLAND, Calif. – Less than three months away from their contract expiration, tens of thousands of healthcare workers at Kaiser Permanente will hold pickets to protest the short staffing crisis and its effects on patients and caregivers. The pickets will take place at 50 facilities across California, Washington, Oregon, and Colorado, and will start July 24 and run through July 29.

After three years of the COVID pandemic and chronic understaffing, healthcare workers at Kaiser Permanente are calling on management to provide safe staffing levels. Caregivers say understaffed hospitals and clinics are unsafe and can lead to long wait times, mistaken diagnoses, and neglect, making it harder to give patients quality care.
