Our friends at the AFL-CIO and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) have developed some resources to help parents support their students' distant learning during this pandemic. You'll find some helpful lessons and tools for kids in pre-K through 12th grade. And remember, OPEIU has put together some resources to help you navigate this crisis.
Enroll by May 18 and OPEIU will ensure it costs you nothing to complete your degree. Because of the current economic and health uncertainty facing many of our members, we are making it possible for all students who enroll through the OPEIU Low-Cost Degree Program at Central State University this summer to complete their degree with no out-of-pocket costs.

Each spring, the labor movement takes time to remember and honor workers who have been injured or killed on the job. This year, Workers’ Memorial Day will be Tuesday, April 28, and will take on added importance as the world grapples with the devastating COVID-19 pandemic. While everyone is affected by the crisis, working people — particularly our healthcare workers and other vital service industry workers — are on the frontline.
