Join us for the 26th annual Community Services Agency Bowling Tournament. Proceeds benefit the CSA's mission, which is to improve the lives of workers and their families by helping to meet their human and social service needs; building broad and diverse coalitions to promote and protect dignity and justices for all workers; and empowering workers and their unions to make their communities better, more responsive places to live, work, raise a family and retire.
Looking ahead, 2018 looks to be a very challenging year. The United States Supreme Court will soon decide the case known as Janus vs AFSCME, which could affect the entire labor movement. Combining this with a White House and Congress controlled by a very conservative Republican party, Labor will have to fight to survive. Local 2 has prepared with a combination of shop steward training, organizing, and improved communications with our members.
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.
