Tell Congress and President Biden: Put workers first!



We cannot let this moment pass without big change.

The AFL-CIO has a Workers First Agenda for Congress and President Joe Biden. We are ready to work together to pass laws that put working people first. Will you add your name and join us? We need laws that protect our rights to organize and join a union.

We need laws that set workplace safety standards to keep us safe during this global pandemic and beyond. We need laws that advance racial and economic justice in every facet of our society. We need laws that create jobs with a living wage and good benefits—where workers are treated with dignity and can hold our heads high, knowing we are paid fairly for our work and can provide for ourselves and the people we love.

Celebrating Black History Month: OPEIU Remembers a Civil Rights Pioneer

Celebrating Black History Month: OPEIU Remembers a Civil Rights Pioneer
Modern histories of the civil rights movements of the 1950s and ‘60s frequently place figures like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks front-and-center, while neglecting the hundreds of thousands of everyday people who turned the fight for civil rights into full-blown movements for civil rights.

By resisting, protesting and boycotting vestiges of white supremacy, black Americans across the nation slowly uprooted many of the discriminatory structures that prevented, and continue to prevent, black Americans from realizing the relative prosperity enjoyed by their white counterparts. Despite playing an integral role, most of the activists who made up the movement remain historically anonymous, deemed too obscure, insignificant or irrelevant to warrant their own histories.

OPEIU’s TECH WORKERS UNION LOCAL 1010 STATEMENT ON THE TECH WORKERS’ BILL OF RIGHTS

OPEIU’s Tech Workers Union Local 1010 is pleased to today join a coalition of tech industry employees, unions and solidarity networks in presenting the Tech Workers' Bill of Rights, a set of principles to create an equitable future by raising the standards for all workers across the industry -- whether full-time office workers who deserve a say in the products they build, warehouse workers facing unsafe conditions or gig workers seeking security in tech’s competitive landscape.

A collaboration of the Tech Workers Coalition, the Tech Workers' Bill of Rights outlines protections all tech workers deserve and is based on the core values of equity, empowerment, representation, accountability, safety, autonomy, fairness and freedom. It covers a variety of issues specific to tech, including inclusive workplaces free from discrimination, freedom to speak one’s mind without retribution and protection from company surveillance.
