Welcome to the Office and Professional Employees International Union Local 39
The Office and Professional Employees International Union are office, technical and professional employees working together to improve our jobs and the lives of our families. OPEIU is the first, and largest, labor union in the United States and Canada dedicated to professional, technical and office workers. Local 39's organization begins with its members. We represent over 3,000 professional, technical and clerical employees in the greater Madison, WI area.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve with each passing day, OPEIU wants to ensure its members are made aware of the myriad resources available to help during this uncertain time. The Speaker of the House, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (Calif.), just released an easy-to-follow primer on what the first three coronavirus stimulus packages mean for you and your family.

Due to an issue raised relating to the notification requirements outlined in the Constitution and concerns that there would not be enough time to discuss the amendment, membership voted to hold a Special Membership meeting at a later date rather than proceed during the Quarterly Membership meeting. The Executive Board has reviewed this request and decided to move forward with a Special Membership meeting on December 15th to discuss and vote on the motion that will be presented to membership.
