Veterans play an integral role at every level of the labor movement and we are proud to honor them this Veterans Day.

NEW YORK (PAI)—After “a union-wide survey of its members” which showed overwhelming support for re-electing Democratic President Joe Biden, the Office and Professional Employees board made it official on November 3.

The decision is separate from the AFL-CIO-wide endorsement of the Biden-Harris ticket in a large convocation in Philadelphia earlier this year. That decision included OPEIU, but this one means the union can marshal its people next year for their re-election.

Biden garnered the largest vote share among OPEIU’s 100,000 members and a large majority on the union board, outpolling all other potential presidential hopefuls combined. The decision is also based on his staunch pro-worker and public pro-union record over his three years in the Oval Office, said union President Richard Lanigan.

Keep a copy of your Union Plus Auto Buying referral email that can assist in researching your purchase if you think you qualified for a rebate but did not receive a gift card.
