AFGE members joined OPEIU Local 2 activists from AFGE, AFT, Teamsters, Solidarity Center, SEIU, and IBEW in the protest. The support from AFGE members for the AFGE staff was amazing. They rallied, marched and chanted in a true show of solidarity.
OPEIU is fighting for a fair contract and is demanding that AFGE negotiate a fair deal for their staff.
OPEIU Local 2 is a labor union supporting over 8,000 professional workers in Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia. We represent staff members across a number of sectors, including healthcare, non-profit, and more.
