National Run For Office Day

One week ago, voters across the nation cast their ballots and ushered into office more than 300 union members, building more power for working people by adding to the 984 union members elected during last year’s midterm elections. Today, Nov. 12, 2019, is National Run for Office Day. On this day – and all days – OPEIU enthusiastically encourages working people, unionized or not, to build a future worth fighting for by running for office.

Nonprofit Employees Continue to Choose OPEIU

In historic numbers, nonprofit employees throughout the country have chosen to come together and form a union with OPEIU. They join the growing trend of employees at nonprofit organizations unionizing to gain a say in their organization, increase transparency and raise workplace standards.

The past few months have seen unprecedented growth by our local unions. In one week alone, more than 420 employees at the National Endowment for Democracy, YouthCare, and San Francisco-Marin Food Bank chose to unionize with OPEIU. Click "read more" to see their stories.
