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.

This week, the U.S. Senate has the opportunity to protect more than one million retirees’ pensions by voting YES on S.2254, the Butch Lewis Act – but only if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell brings it to the floor for a vote.

Working people took money out of their paychecks for decades to ensure they have a dignified retirement, but without a floor vote on the Butch Lewis Act, those sacrifices might have been made in vain.

Time is running out. Contact your senator today and tell them to urge Mitch McConnell to allow a vote on the Butch Lewis Act. Find out how to contact your senator by clicking this link. Read the full text of the bill here.
