OPEIU Local 2 started this petition to AFL-CIO

The AFL-CIO has imposed a contract on 50 of its own employees - represented by OPEIU Local 2 - that allows AFL-CIO leadership to impose furloughs on any number of employees for any number of days at any point. AFL-CIO leadership has stated that it will not negotiate furloughs or the terms of furloughs with OPEIU Local 2.

Unions should have the right to negotiate decisions such as furloughs and layoffs with management. These decisions have direct economic impact on union members.

What makes this decision by AFL-CIO leadership so particularly disturbing is that the AFL-CIO represents 12.5 million US union members. Its leaders also repeatedly spoke out against the forced furlough of US government employees in 2018-2019. 

This behavior is both anti-union and hypocritical of AFL-CIO leadership.

If you believe that these 50 AFL-CIO employees deserve better, sign the petition.

If you believe that AFL-CIO leadership should know better, sign the petition.

If you believe that all US union members deserve better, sign the petition.
