Your right to form a union is protected by long-standing U.S. labor laws. While most employers use all kinds of excuses why unions aren’t needed and put up challenges to block organizing efforts, workers succeed every day in building powerful employee organizations.
OPEIU can provide you and your co-workers with the tools and support needed to organize a union where you work. You can click on the links below to help you get started or contact OPEIU at 1-800-346-7348 or Contact Us Here.
Once your union is official, you and your co-workers will negotiate a legally binding contract with your employer that puts in writing all terms of employment. When negotiations are over you vote to approve the contract.
The Office and Professional Employees International Union was chartered in 1945 and, with more than 100,000 members, we’re one of the larger unions of the AFL-CIO. OPEIU has locals throughout the United States and Canada.
