Have you made your plan to vote yet?

Dear OPEIU member:

As ferocious attacks on workers’ rights, on our healthcare and livelihoods ramp up, we have one question: When will it end?

Tuesday, Nov. 6 marks one of the most consequential midterm elections in modern history. Candidates who support the interests and values of working people are on the ballot at all levels of government. Working people have the opportunity to turn the tides on Nov. 6 by casting their ballots and ushering into office candidates who understand, appreciate and respect the vital contributions working people across the nation make each and every day.

Now is the time to start planning for Election Day. Do you know where to vote? How to get there? Who you’re voting for? The AFL-CIO has created a website for union members,myunionmyvote.org, to help you craft your plan to get to the polls on Nov. 6.

If we don’t have a seat at the table, the saying goes, then we’re on the menu. That is why Tuesday’s election is so consequential. Working people need advocates in the halls of government at the local, state, and federal levels — now more than ever. Will you help them get there, so they can help us?

Visit myunionmyvote.org to make your plan to vote on Election Day, Nov. 6, 2018.

STATEMENT BY THE OFFICE AND PROFESSIONAL EMPLOYEES INTERNATIONAL UNION IN SUPPORT OF UNITE HERE HOTEL WORKERS ON STRIKE AT MARRIOTT

The Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU), AFL-CIO, stands strongly in support of Marriott hotel workers on strike in major cities throughout the country who are fighting for a fair and livable wage and safe working conditions. OPEIU supports these workers in their fight for a better future, and believes they are 100 percent correct when they say one job should be enough to provide for themselves and their families.

Marriott, which now owns Starwood properties such as Sheraton and Westin, is more than big enough to provide jobs that are safe with wages and benefits that are sufficient for its employees to live on.

OPEIU publicly pledges to support Marriott hotel workers by not eating, sleeping or meeting at any Marriott during a boycott and/or strike, and will encourage our members to do the same. We further pledge to respect women and not engage or tolerate harassment of hotel workers in any form.
