Millennials, white-collar workers bringing new life to unions

The ranks of organized labor have been shrinking for decades, and an upcoming Supreme Court decision involving the ability of public-sector unions to collect fees from nonmembers is expected to further sap the movement of much-needed funds.

But signs of life are flashing in unexpected places.

Working People's Day of Action

On February 26, the Supreme Court will hear arguments in Janus v. AFSCME, a case funded by wealthy interests to further rig the system against working people. Join OPEIU on February 24 for the Working People’s Day of Action. OPEIU sisters and brothers will join thousands of working people and our allies across the country to demand an end to the rigged system and defend our freedoms. Join us. #UnRigtheSystem
