Welcome to the Office and Professional Employees International Union Local 29
OPEIU Local 29 is a dynamic, respected labor organization, dedicated to improving the working conditions of office, technical, professional and health care employees. We represent over 6,000 employees at more than 300 locations.  We participated with numerous other labor unions in the country through an unprecedented bargaining process that broke new ground in labor relations and established a model for health care with Kaiser Permanente. OPEIU 29 and OPEIU 3 membership voted overwhelmingly to approve the merger between the unions effective April 1, 2016.   The merger will continue to model the professional representation and collective bargaining for OPEIU members while advancing and strengthening the members’ economic, social and professional interests.  The merged unions share mutual goals and objectives and recognize the importance of representation, collective bargaining and organizing workers.

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.  ~Charles Darwin

A message from the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions

What we’re fighting for:

We are committed to negotiating the best possible National Agreement that protects all our benefits and
rights and includes economic improvements such as:

  • Strong raises – that are equal across regions
  • Increased pension multiplier and change pension hours
  • No takeaways on health plans
  • KP Washington with full National Agreement
  • Insourcing and the end of subcontracting

What's New

California Wildfires Disaster Relief

The Federation is working closely with labor councils in the fire-affected areas to provide labor support services for our members who are suffering.  We are providing help since the unions and organizations in that area are overwhelmed and direct communication is unreliable.

We have collected and are updating in real-time a list of crisis-services (not complete – any unions please send us updates on your own resources and efforts and we will add), sources of real-time information for displaced people, and places unions and members can donate directly to the labor councils to provide assistance.  Here is the link to the webpage:

We are asking you to do three things:

  1. Please distribute this link to your members in affected areas directly through any means that you have.  Post on your websites, Facebook pages, as well as emailing out.
  2. Please donate as much as you can to the council or to any organizations in this link.
  3. If you have people who are interested in volunteering, please have them email Tara Carey, from our staff, at as we will build a list of volunteers to contact when it is safe to send them to help. People will be needed in a variety of capacities.

In unity,
