Earlier today, Wisconsin AFL-CIO President Stephanie Bloomingdale, issued the following solidarity statement with the workers of OPEIU Local 39:
“OPEIU Local 39 members at CUNA Mutual in Madison are on strike for good union jobs to remain in Wisconsin, for quality and affordable healthcare for all, for fair wages, and for the ability to retire with dignity after a lifetime of work. As union men and women, we do not take the decision to strike lightly. The history of our union movement has clearly demonstrated that only by standing shoulder to shoulder have working people gained the family-supporting wages, pay equity and other benefits which we are rightly due. The Wisconsin labor movement proudly stands in solidarity with our sisters and brothers of OPEIU Local 39 on strike at CUNA Mutual as they take brave action to secure a fair contract. We urge CUNA Mutual to come to the table and negotiate in good faith.”
Show your support for OPEIU Local 39 striking workers today. Stop by the picket line, sign the solidarity petition and send a letter.
Together, we stand as one united labor movement to make gains in our workplaces through the power of collective bargaining, collective action, and strong unions.
