OPEIU Local 182 Members Are Asking for FAIR Wages in Nashville—and They Need Our Help

OPEIU Local 182 Members Are Asking for FAIR Wages in Nashville—and They Need Our Help

Our sisters and brothers who work at the United Steelworkers' Benefit Fund are asking for our help in their fight for fair wages. Many who work for the Fund are forced to work second jobs because they are not paid what they are worth. 

We believe one job should be enough: all working people deserve to be paid a fair wage.

Show solidarity with Local 182 members who are fighting for fairness in Nashville, Tennessee, by signing their petition. In doing so, you make it clear that, as an OPEIU member, you are standing shoulder-to-shoulder with your sisters and brothers in their fight for a fair contract.

2020 Democrats Try to Woo Back Trump’s Union Voters

LAWRENCE, Massachusetts—Against the faded brick facade of the Everett Mill, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) officially began her presidential bid this past weekend. And she did so by looking backwards.

Warren told a story of collective action, of workers uniting behind common goals and bridging language and ethnicity barriers for the sake of fair wages, overtime pay, and the right to join a union. She spoke at the site of the famous “Bread and Roses” strike, which was led by textile workers on a cold January day in 1912 and stretched into March. Addressing a crowd of 3,500 on a blustery day where the wind occasionally rattled a large American flag draped over rusting metal, the senator drew parallels from that moment to the one confronting the country currently.
