OPCMIA Urges Patience as All Votes Are Counted

As many election experts predicted, we do not yet know the winner of the presidential campaign, and of many races for the Senate, House, and state and local offices. The COVID-19 pandemic required unprecedented use of mail and early voting, and counting those votes takes time.

COVID-19 Reminds Us Why Workers Need Unions

On Labor Day 2020, as we honor and celebrate all our movement has done to empower workers to improve their lives, build the American middle class, give workers a voice on the job, advance workplace safety, and give us everything from the eight-hour day to the weekend, we now have another reason why workers need unions: the COVID-19 pandemic.
